3/4” G1S spruce ply.

I found the plans for this storage cart via Steve Ramsey’s Wood Working for Mere Mortals website

Routing dadoes was lots of fun but made a considerable amount of sawdust. Consider routing outside. It took awhile to clean up all the sawdust.

Simple glue and screw. It’s not a difficult project as I completed it from start to finish in one day ~8hrs. It would have gone faster with another pair of hands to help with the clamping (some of my pieces were warped).

This cart holds LOTS of lumber scraps and sheet pieces that I used to move around piece by piece. This will definitely allow me to clean up clutter and scrap pieces around my shop that are still good for project work.

Thanks Steve!

Nice work. I really need to make one of these for my shop, and put any end to my haphazard off-cuts storage. Thanks for posting.

Great job. Thanks for sharing!

I’ve watched his video before on making this. At the time I didn’t have a shop to put it in. Now that I’m ready to make something I need to decide if I want to make one like this or make something that’s on the wall. I like the mobility of this and that it can hold the big sheets as well. Decisions, decisions…. :)

I made one of these last year. They are fantastic. I made it just like the plans showed – haven’t made the pipe clamped hangars, yet – I filled it right up to overflowing.

Nice job – looks great.

I am so in the need for one of these. I have all my wood against a wall taking up so much room. This could be the answer to my space problem. Thank you for posting this and leading us to the plans. Good job on your project too!

Thanks for all the comments!

I find it strange when I build an organization system.. it somehow fills up immediately as if I should have built it long ago. Thus has great use in my shop. I started with clamp racks oddly enough.
