So I just finished the project that brought me to Lumberjocks in the first place. The lumber cart originally posted by Jerry. I used the sketch up plans that bigdavef150 posted on the Sketchup warehouse https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model.html?id=u7bcebf6e-5281-4555-a33c-167bbd247334

I had a ton of cut offs and scrap from my roughly year and a half of woodworking that were getting out of control. I had a pile under our cellar stairs but my wife informed me she wanted that area to store Christmas stuff. I also had a big stack of random sheet goods that needed a better home too. This was my first project with my new to me craftsman 113 table saw that i got for $80 off of Facebook market. Really happy with how everything turned out, used 3/4 sanded pine plywood. I couldn’t see spending huge money on cabinet grade plywood. Now I need to get busy on some projects to use up some of this scrap!

Unfortunately using your scraps for projects makes even more scraps. It defies physics, but it’s true!
Have a good look at your cart, that is the most empty it will ever be….

This will make a nice lumber cart and is a nice addition to your shop.

Well, this will certainly help to declutter your shop! Little boxes and other knick-knacks are great projects for your smaller scraps!

Hi Tank that’s a good looking cut off cart. I built one similar although smaller a couple of years ago. It didn’t take long to out grow it. I’m betting you’ll out grow yours as well in no time like me.

Is anyone actually happy with their lumber cart a year down the road? I was thrilled right after I loaded all my sheet goods and cut-offs onto it, but after that it was just a big, awkard, always in the way, and heavy to roll around nuisance.
