Hey guys,

I just made it to finish my lumber storage cart.
Since my workshop is pretty small I always had to deal with cluttered lumber in my shop which was extremly frustrating.
Also searching for a piece was also pretty annoying.

For this reasons these were my requirements for the storage:

- large vertical support to avoid bending of taller pieces
- organization/sorting of lumber
- plenty of space
- good accessibility
- retaining a small base

so this is my design result: (<would like to have the picture shown here not as attachment, how can I do this?>)


If you are interested, I have made a video about the build with 3D plans included:


I would like to know what you think? How do you store your lumber?
I think in general it's a matter of available space you have in or around your shop...

Hope you like it :)

Daniel

You have more room than I. Nice cart. I've been thinking of taking out half of a counter across the end of the shop to make room for storage. Largest sheets I'll store there are 5' x 5'. The counter has just become a junk collector.

Hey guys,

really appreciating your responses, thanks.

Sadly my shop is so tiny that I even can't feed my table saw with more than a 4' pieces because I just have not enough room in front and behind the saw :)
Therefore I have to use my Festool plunge saw...
@Rick: Thanks man, I do the best I can with the limited space in my shop and I am still improving :). Yes, the overhead dustcollection works pretty well, in my dust collection video I show how I modified my blade guard...
@Brian: Thanks, for me this was the first time using Sketchup. When I started using it, for me it was not too much self explaining. I spent about 2 hours for learning the basics for doing this plan. I had to watch several tutorials because non of em even could provide all simple basics I needed for this project. You inspired me to do a video tutorial for the basics to accomplish a plan like I did, thanks.

nice, I like the small footprint!

I built one that has a 4'x8' footprint. Even with 6" wheels it's a bear to move because of so much weight. (and lack of places to move it to in a two car garage)
