Currently I’m looking at the Shop Notes A-Frame type lumber cart. While it is a excellent and well thought out idea it’s implementation is insane. First off it uses 1x lumber for all non ply components in totally oddball dimensions. Usually 1×3. I’m not going to the trouble of buying expensive 1×4 lumber and chopping a half inch off it when other off the shelf material will work as well or better and cheaper. The designer is also overly fond of screws, and oddly not so fond of glue apparently. He has also apparently not been introduced to a Kreg pocket hole jig, my favorite tool. I am going to build that thing, got the casters today and I only ordered them last night. Wow Amazon was fast on that one, though I suspect they got drop shipped cause I never seen Amazon ship out of Nashville before. I also plan to widen it a bit as original dimensions are 32” wide, and a extra 4” will give me a lot of breathing room. I’ll try and start a post on it when I get started, though I guess it might be tricky to avoid the copyright issues. Hopefully if I step on any lines the mods will just edit and warn me and not go ballistic with bans or anything.
