I recently made a purchase of about 6000 bf of rough random width and specie lumber. I realized after getting the 1st 1600 bf of lumber piled by my planer that I do not have a good rough lumber cart. So I decided before the rest showed up I better do something about it.
This is the cart that was the final result.

Yup...well some of 'em anyway. ;)
And yes, it is a Foreign language...well to be more accurate, it's Chinook; it was being used here long before Europeans showed up.

Thanks Guys,
This was never designed to work off of. It was designed for stock coming out of the planer to be piled, and then brought back to start the process over.
I like to build at bench top height, I use a hydraulic scissor jack to lower projects to the floor or lift them to my bench.The height of this cart would kill my back to work off of. Lee I thought I had a lot of room but it is closing in around me 3000 SF.

You all have a blessed day, Todd

Nice, you should drop some ply into that lower shelf as it could be very handy for small pieces, 6 castors will only work for a very flat floor, I would use only 4 very heavy duty castors myself, its a nice job, rolling platforms are very useful. N

Thanks to everyone for the comments.
Neville, This cart was built with the center castors about a 1/2" bigger than the end ones making turning around objects in the shop much easier. The idea came from the carts at the big Box stores.

Thanks again and have a blessed day and fun making some dust, Todd

So far it works great Dan. I'm just not sure how well it is going to move with a heavy load on it. I still do not have my finished floor in my shop its just OSB now but it will be T & G hardwood flooring. even bigger wheels tend to roll hard on the OSB. But I am confident it will work fine now and better when I get my new floor in.
Have a blessed evening Dan, and some fun making dust, Todd
