I just bought 70 bf of ash to start building my new bench (turns out I need a bit more). I was cleaning up the garage and had scraps of wood coming out of my ears so I decided we better put first things first. I browsed several lumber carts here on LJ’s and finally decided on this one
Thank you Vincent Nocito!
I don’t have much room to work with and I rarely use panels so this was the best choice for me. It is made completely of scraps and things that I had on hand (although I may need another bottle of TB II now). Some of it is recycled product, some of it failures, and some of it just stuff I had left over. I did not make any real plans for this. I couldn’t sleep this morning so I was up at 4:30 and after making breakfast and doing a few “house things” I was able to get into the garage.
It measures 15w x 24d x 37h (height is with wheels). If someone wants to make something like this the dimensions aren’t as important as the concept is, just decide your dimensions when you get to it. It features 5 compartments, 7, 15, 17, 25, and 32”. Yeah, like I said, no plans, just working with what I had and flying by the seat of my pants (and a pot of coffee), I would’ve rather not had two compartments within 2” (15” and 17”) but it works fine.
The last picture shows it all loaded up with a view from the top showing that I marked each compartment for the depth of that specific one for a quick reference when I need to grab something of a specific length, the front compartments also feature the measurements.
Here is what it looks like without one side one it.
Here is a picture of it before applying the wood paneling that I had. I knew I was saving that stupid thing (for 18 months) for a reason. Now you see why I call it Scrappy
I keep my longer stock above the garage door and the few panels against a wall.
As always, all comments are welcomed and thank you for checking it out!
