The first cart. (Drying rack cart)
Before I was looking everywhere for a place to set multiple items when they dry. Now this cart provides a place for multiple items. and is on casters so it can go where needed. It was made from scrap pine, and left unpainted because it will get finishes on it from the items placed on the cart. The third picture shows items on it to dry. An unexpected benefit of this cart is that it can serve to hold multiple parts as they are being cut, routed, etc.
The second cart. (Cut sheet cart)
Before all the cut sheet goods were stacked up against the wall, making it hard to get to. This cart allows easier access and also is on casters so it can go where needed. The last picture shows it loaded.

Both very nice designs. I wish I had room in my own shop for something like this.
