Lumber cart

I scavenged some OSB from a jobsite that was destined for the landfill and made another lumber cart to store some of my leftover construction grade wood. There is a lot of home building going on around my neighborhood and I’m amazed at some of the things being thrown away. I always ask before I take anything but the crews are happy to get rid of it.

Great save & build!!! I like to see items destined for the landfill put to good (great) use.

FYI to anyone interested. This came out of my “The Complete Table Saw Book” ISBN 1-890621-66-8. The only thing in the plan I did not include is a clamp holder on one end of the cart which is closed. I left both ends open since I’ve got my clamps hanging elsewhere.

This plan also lokos very close to the one in a book I have as well, “The complete book of woodworking”. I want and need one of these badly. I think I might start scavenging the local houses being put up in my neighborhood and asking for some scraps for this, thanks for the idea.
