Well, my pop was in town visiting and since he’s the one who got me interested in woodworking from a young age, I thought it’d be appropriate for us to tackle a project. So, we built this lumber cart.

I modeled it after Steve’s cart (WWMM), knowing that I don’t have room to store 8ft sheets of lumber. I also have a lot of small blanks and cutoffs that I don’t have place to store elsewhere, so we replaced one of the bins with a small shelving system. It works really well and my shop, tiny as it is, is so much cleaner and more organized with this cart.

Thanks for the inspiration, Steve, and thanks for the help and guidance, dad!

I saw the episode on WWMM and also liked the idea of a half size lumber cart. Must have been fun working with your Pops, like old times again. Should have taken a photo of you and your Dad next to the finished lumber cart. Thanks for the post.

The shelf for small cut offs is a great idea, I think I’ll incorporate that into my build as well. Nicely done.

Very nice.. I also will be build one like this but I want to make mine with the option of a panel cutting jig… That way I can cut my plywood down and also store the rest…

@Tim – good idea. I’ve put up a picture of my pop and I by the cart.

@Rusty – that’d be a great addition. Probably would work best on an 8ft cart – I’ve seen a few plans for those, and would certainly be handy.

Thanks for the look and comments everyone!

Great looking storage cart. Will have to build something like this. Always interested in “small shop” projects. Thanks for posting.
