I was starting to collect a lot of scrap wood and needed to find a better place to put it. I am sharing a two car garage with my wife so I need to allow for her car to get parked in. She has been saying that there was no more room for her to park. So I sat down and tried to figure out what I could build that would work for me. I first went to Sketchup and worked with that and now know how to use it for at least this project.
Overall dimensions are 24”x96”x34 1/2”. You can see that I beefed up the bottom to make sure that it would hold all the weight and not sag. I used 5” swivel locking casters so that it will be easy to push around. I had to used 4 sheets of 3/4” plywood. I got all my materials with some smart shopping for about $250. First photo is the bottom of the base. It shows how I beefed it up with some 4”x 3/4” hard maple. The second photo is the insides of what I call my cut off bin. Photo three shows the sheet goods cut off area and the side to the cut off bin. Four shows the end of the sheet cut offs and the full sheet storage. Photo 5 gives you another look in the cut off bin.
I was to tired last night when I finished it to start cleaning up and filling this thing up so I will post some more pictures when I get a chance. I will also work on trying to figure out how to put my Sketchup drawings up too.
Let me know what you think and if you have any questions.
