I was having a hard time managing all of my different sizes of lumber, especially sheet goods.. This rolling lumber cart has really helped organize my shop and make my lumber easily accessible.

*When this thing gets loaded up it can be hard to move if you’re not prepared. I would suggest 6 or 8 large casters and maybe a “tug” rope.

Nice Lumber cart, something every wood shop should have. I built one for my workshop that looks about the same size as your one and I could have built one half that size again and still want it to be bigger.
Thanks for sharing.

For a minute with the truck in the background all I could think was “I don’t remember posting my lumber cart”... Then I realized, not mine. I made one off those plans a few months ago. It got a ton of wood off the floor and random stacks around the wall/shelves and really cleared up a ton of space. I figured I would get maybe 75% of my stuff, but with a few longer (more then 8’) exceptions I got pretty much all of it on there.

Hey Speck, mine is so full of wood that I keep telling myself that I need to add at minimum two more wheels and a heavy duty pull string at the bottom. I just moved it to my new house and boy that was a feat.. This is still one of my most popular posts on my blog. Pinterest really loves it.

Which plans did you follow?

When I was moving it from one side of the garage to the other, I almost lost it rolling down the drive way. Light it is not. Shop Notes 55 article. I will have to look around for it. Another issue had plans for a panel saw you could add on. As to the wheels, I had to do some modifications and replaced the screws with some significantly heavier lag bolts. I don’t move it that much so I just grab a convenient part and shove or pull.


Think think think! Hey, this might work!
