I never seem to build projects for myself, lately, so I made a personal vow (to myself) to start building things that would help me in the shop. Since I have an archaic collection of leftover furniture pieces that I’m using in the shop, I decided that I needed something better.
This is a Woodworkers Journal project, circa 2008, that George Vondrisksa made in an article I stumbled across.
The great thing about it is, its made from a single sheet of 3/4” BC plywood, with no waste.
This is the first, of several I’m building, to use as outfeed tables, and general shop carts in the shop.
A well thought out project, and much appreciated. Thanks George!

Update: They look better with a couple coats of Watco oil, and then a wax coat on top…

That is a really nice cart Steve.
I need to replace a couple of mine that are worn out and I think those will do the trick.
Simple & useful.
Nice build by the way.

Now that just hit my “I want one of those” bones. Nice.
I gotta try to find that article. Although your nice pics pretty much says it all.

Thanks for the inspiration,

I believe it was a Woodworkers Journal, October 2008 article. Let me know if you need a copy, and I’ll scan it,
and ship it via email…
