Lumber storage cart

I recently ran out of space in my garage, so I was forced to take measures, to avoid the evil that is “throwing away things I might have use for in the future”

One of my projects was a lumber cart, that stored all my special expensive wood scraps and plywood. Mere Mortals inspired the design of it, but made alot of adjustments of my own.
Its made out of 15 mm pine flooring/roofing plywood that I had.
Made both sides tilted, so wood doesnt tip out of the rooms. I might install drawers with full clearance later, if I end up having a need for it. Usage will reveal this.

Project took 2 days with the help of cheap underaged laborers


P.S. Does anyone know what the manufacturers name for the plastic boxes is?

Nice build!
I build one as well and love it.

Don’t know about the bins, but the dog is pretty cute!

Thanks all, it´s not made to be esthetic, but practical.

Yes, it´s inspired by Steve Ramseys video. (Video of it here)

if you are building one yourself, considder making both sides slightly tilted backwards, or wood tip outward against you. This also adds some challenge to an otherwise simple build.
And make an opening in the rooms, so its easier to clean out dirt/sawdust from the bottom.
