Haven’t been on Lumberjocks in a while due to some family issues. I’m at the age where me and my family develop health problems more frequently. I’m also at the age where I can’t carry sheets of 3/4 inch cabinet grade plywood like I used to. I looked on line for a dolly that would help me but they were expensive and didn’t fit my needs. I have a small shop in my basement, no driveway. Plywood has to be unloaded on the street go between two houses to my back entrance and then through narrow doors into my shop. Rough pavement and sidewalks and narrow doors, I have lots of obstacles. My only options were to have the place where I bought the plywood break it down for me or to break it down myself on my street. This is where my dolly comes in. I built this contraption and thought I would share it with you all. If you live close to Frackville, PA you are welcome to borrow it. I don’t use it too often but it comes in handy when I need it.

Plywood comes off the dolly at the exact height of my table saw. I can also put some 1×3 lumber underneath the plywood and work with the plywood right on the dolly.
