For anyone that has been putting off making a lumber cart for your shop, DON’T!!!! I had wood stacked everywhere and this cart holds all of it. It is the first project that I have ever done from plans. I was surprised how much easier it is to build something with detailed directions. I did put 6 casters instead of 4 and did staight angles for the bins instead of curves. As the pictures show, My first attempt at installing the shelves went a little off. I’m still not sure why I decided to make the one shelf an inch shorter on the right side, but that’s why we do a dry fit. After that was corrected, they went together without much trouble at all. The best part of the entire build was my wife telling me that she didn’t see what was wrong with my second shelf and then trying to convince me it wasn’t that bad and I should leave it. I guess I should be grateful for the low expectations!
Total Time: 8 hours (I’m slow)
Total Cost: $260
