Simple Rolling Lumber Cart

I threw this together over the weekend as a way to get a stack of redwood up off the floor and mobile. I will probably reinforce the sides with some plywood and perhaps put some type of handle on it to make it easier to push. About $60 in materials including wood, hardware and some Harbor Freight wheels. The 3/4” plywood was a Home Depot scratch and ding score. $4.00 for the whole sheet.

Cart is 30” wide and 8’ in length.

Looks good – I made something similar some time ago – I added an extra pair of wheels in the centre – I found that this helped spread the load and made it a lot easier to move the cart around.

$4.00 a sheet with Dings and Dents – we have to pay extra for the dings and dents (3/4” fir ply [8’ * 4’]) costs 16€/m2 so a sheet costs about 47.50€ (US$65.00)

Looks good, is it heavy to move?

It actually rolls pretty well. I opted to stay below $5 on each wheel. There were some larger wheels in the $13 range that looked like they would probably be even better.

I’ve actually found some great plywood and other lumber in the home depot rejects area. It pays to swing by and see what might be there.

need to make it less of a storage place and more of a work shop. But other then that looks great!

Nice!
I wouldn’t have room to park something that big.
