Like many other ideas this one has been rolling around in my head for some time. I received a flyer from a company that built and sold carts and other material handling products. The one that gave me the idea for this one sold for around $1500.00. That was out of the question for me, so I finally a few months ago decided to build one out of standard Douglas fir 2X stock.the most expensive thing I have in it are the castors. I have maybe $75.00 in this project. I used mostly mortise and tenon joints along with large box joints.
When flipped up flat it is perfect for feeding my table saw from. It is no problem to tip up 6 sheets of 3/4” birch plywood. It actually works better than I had dreamed. As well as tilting it is great to unload plywood when delivered onto. I also have a good metal cart for unloading trucks onto. Between the 2 I hardly ever have to unload a cart while the truck is there for more.
If you are interested in building one it is quite easy And I would be happy to help you through the process.
Thanks for looking, Todd
