Any woodworker has a surplus of “cut-offs” and small piece of scrap wood laying around. After listening to my wife complain for year about how I needed to get better organized, I built this mobile cart. I have included the original design doc that i found after much searching the internet. I loosely followed this plan to come up with a pretty functional unit for me. shorter pieces go into one of four shelves, longer pieces can stand upright. Sheet goods can stand upright in the back (I use a bungee cord to keep them from tipping over)> The little shelf on the top has sides and make a great place to store sheets of sandpaper, etc. Enjoy!

I like your design. Many that I see simply take up too much floor space. My lumber and cutoffs are pretty disorganized, but they’re disorganized in areas of the shop that aren’t useful for woodworking anyway. Yours looks just right, and would clean up at least 75% of my mess.

This will hold a lot of cut-offs, and will be easy to access them. Nicely done.

Nice work! It will definitely be better for saving wood and keeping the shop more organized.

I like your design. I currently use the tub under bench system and it is not working out so well.
This would get everything up and organized, no more kneeling and digging but not taking up too much valuable floor space.
