How to make a lumber storage cart

Lately I’ve been using lots of pallets to make things like benchesfloating shelves, and trays (some of which are for sale!!) Part of using pallets is that you have to disassemble them and you end up with lots of wood to store. So, rather than stack the wood in front of my house (sorry neighbors) I decided to build a simple storage cart, so I could neatly store it, and get to it when I needed.  This also helps a lot when going through the boards to make selections for a project. Rather than a stack that is prone to falling over, the boards are in a bin that I can sift through. This is a really simple project that I made up off the top of my head (I made the plans after the fact to match what I’d built).

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 5 – 2″ x 4″ x 8′
  • 1 – 24″ x 48″ piece of plywood/MDF
  • 1 – sheet of pegboard
  • 4 –  2 1/2″ (or larger) casters

As always, I’d love your feedback, and to see your build. There’s TONS of room for modifications/improvements on this one, so go for it!!

    That looks way easier than I expected. This may have to be a spring project (it’s way too cold to be outside right now!). Keep ‘em coming!
