Topic tags/keywords: mobile rolling wheels base storage

Hi all,
I am looking for ideas on a design for a mobile wood storage unit. I am thinking about something on wheels that I can roll around my shop and move out out of the way when I need to. My shop is small.
Thx, Lloyd

I saw several different versions posted here on LumberJocks. Perhaps a search of the projects will give you some ideas.

My shop is small too. Check out the one in my projects. It rolls and has a “porch” for small pieces of plywood.
It is 3’ x 4’ with the “porch”. It will not accommodate large sheets of plywood or anything longer than about 6’.

My lumber storage cart is 51” x 39” and 72” high. I had so many off cuts and sheet goods leaning against walls and stacked on my lumber rack that I just couldn’t take it anymore. It is a skeleton frame work of mostly 2×2’s, but went together quickly and saved me a lot of space. It has 3 bins for sheet goods (accommodates 2’x4’, 4’x4’, 4’x8’) and 6bins for lumber off cuts (15”, 25”, 27”, 28”, 60”, 96”) I have a 9’ ceiling in my shop so 8’ tall lumber and ply fits vertically. Let me know if you want the Sketchup file.

I’m new here and don’t know how I can or should post the SketchUp file. Can someone give me a hint on how to do this?

I am not sure that you can. I sent you a pm with my email address. If you could email it to me that’d be great.

If you need a cutoff cart you may want to look at the one I built:
