Default New lumber cart

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.

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.

When I assemble cabinets a table like that is just about right height, and easier to lift the cabinet off once assembled.

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
