Here is my version of the ever popular Lumber Cart. This was created on the foundation of all other similar lumber carts here on LJ, with a couple exceptions.
1.) took 4 hours to build. I 98% built this in frustration after the Pittsburgh Steelers were knocked out of the playoffs by an easy 40yr field goal.
2.) all wood was scrap i had laying around, taking up space for no reason. either ditch it or … make a lumber cart!
3.) 5” castor wheels
4.) 3’wide x 4’long. i’ll never use it for 8’ boards or panels in my small shop.
5.) i cut a notch out on the panel side, for future use of my poor-eric-panel-saw with the use of my soon to be first ever used Grizzly track saw.
I would not of bothered to put this up into the Finished Project for all to see. But I did want to give new people getting into woodworking, hope. NOTHING was measured or done right at all with this thing. Every piece is 1/8” off here or there. Everything was just slapped together by eye and pencil. BUT, you can too build something imperfect that is needed in your shop. I had lumber laying around becoming tripping hazard, falling over hazard, etc. I knew I needed a lumber cart but kept delaying because a bit skittish at making the PERFECT project. Well, this is totally opposite. Nothing here in perfect and it was meant to be that way :)
