This Frankencart was made based on the wood scraps I had on hand. I had 3/4” plywood left from my planer cart, so the largest piece was used for the base and I worked from there. It’s based somewhat on LJ Ellen35s cart because I wanted a section in the back for sheet goods.
I went crazy using my dado blade. I was having so much fun that I cut dadoes on both sides of each large triangular divider, forgetting that I didn’t need them for the end dividers. By the time I was ready to make the secondary dividers, I had used up most of my larger pieces of plywood, so those are a hodge-podge of different pieces of lumber. The back section for sheet goods is framed with the failed attempts at routing stopped grooves and a few pieces of warped wood.
Without the casters, the cart is 31” high, 46” long and 28” deep. It would have been nice to have the length at 48” for sheet goods, but when I buy plywood, I get it cut down at the store and the large pieces get used right away anyway.
This was an enjoyable project and used up a lot of the scraps I had been accumulating. It rolls on six 3” casters and fits perfectly between the end of my workbench and the wall. The casters were the only items I had to buy.
Lots of sawdust, organized storage. Works for me.
