One of the more awkward things to handle around the shop is big sheets of plywood. Put the plywood in the notch, pick it up with the handle and balance the top with your other hand.

Here’s what you’ll need:

24” X 16” X 3/4” plywood
1” dowel 6” long
1 1/2” screws
2 1/2” screws
Glue
Cut out the two sides using the dimensions shown. It should be 24” long with a full radius on top.

Cut the bottom 4 1/2” X 5 1/2”.
Drill two 1” holes centered 1 3/4” down in the top of the handle.
Glue and screw the bottom to the sides using the 1 1/2” screws.
Glue and screw the handle to the sides using the 2 1/2” screws.
That’s all there is to it. Just center your piece of plywood on the carrier and get to moving.

Cool Design. Does it allow you to carry it under your arm or do you have to carry it against your arm?

I like your design because you can lift it just a few inches off the ground. This would be great to have when move a 3/4” sheet of MDF. Thanks for Sharing.
