Problem:
Need to safely move projects, parts, portable equipment, or lumber with out having an armful of items that may fall.

Solution:
Shop Cart that has one set of legs longer to make ease of moving, also cut lists, white prints, or notes can be attached.

Place carpet on cart transport surfaces to reduce marring.

Longer set of legs allows for pile of lumber to be moved with less worry of falling off cart.

I just made some carts up to all most your same design, but with out the carpet.
When you start mass producing stuff those carts are a must have.
Plus I have most of my saws and tools on them too.
Great post!

This looks like a pretty minimalist approach, which for shop cart of this nature is the best kind. I really like it.

Is it all just 2×4, glued and screwed. No fancy joints, or pocket hole? I always build my carts out of plywood so they are extremely rigid… I assume you have no complaints on rigidity of yours?

I’m copying you on next build… cost point of yours can’t be beat.

Look again Upgrayedd it’s 3/4” much lighter for these small tables.
