Build a lumber storage cart for your workshop

Here’s a rolling cart for storing lumber, plywood, and other sheet goods in your workshop. I made this to take up as little space as possible, yet hold a lot of wood.

  1. Built this just last week. It's super sturdy and exactly what I needed. Thanks for the plans. You're videos awesome! You got a subscriber for life.

    I built one 26 years ago from the necessity to store 30 mahogany veneer plywood sheets and the Mahogany pieces, and also a separate place for the pookey sticks, a stick used for separating sheets for aligning on contact cement. I've had the whole piece clamped to a furniture dolly so I can roll it around. You did a great job! And you can move it around.

    Another great video for the rest of us. The "sketch up" file will not open with Google Chrome on my state of the art PC. Anyone else having that problem? I've got to have those plans to build this great project. Thanks!

    Great lumber cart! I built mine yesterday. Some comments that might help the next person – (1) I used 2.5 sheets of 4×8 & had 2 cut to 48", and one cut to the 30" base on the panel saw at the lumber yard. Just made it easier for me. (2) Mine is on a 2×4 base including a center support. Very solid! (3) Assembling by myself was doable, but another pair of hands would have really helped. (4) This does hold a ton of wood. I could have made it more narrow &/or dedicated more room for sheet goods (5) You may want to vary the width for the cutoff boxes. From as narrow as 6 inches up to 18 inches.

    Hi Steve,
    I've been an avid fan for years and love your videos and teaching style. 🙂
    I'm hoping to build this cart within the next week or so as I am FINALLY getting to set up my own wood working area.
    As a relative novice, I have two questions:
    1. After having built the cart yourself, would you consider 1/2" ply sufficient instead of 3/4"?
    2. In watching the video I find myself asking if the 5 degree chamfer cuts are necessary. Your thoughts?

    Once again thank you for all of your hard work and excellent videos.
    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    I really like this design. It'll fit exactly what I wanted to do and the space I have to put it. Thanks. I was entertained as well as taught.

    Are you still using this rack after several years? If so, any second thoughts on doing something different or is this still working well for you?

    I just finished your lumber cart following your plans. WOW! It's more than I expected. I used 4" casters so it would roll easier and added 1 1/4" to the width of the shelves, still leaving me with 6" depth for sheet storage. It took 3 sheets of 3/4 plywood (with about half sheet left), 2 of AC for the parts that show and one of CD for the shelves and bottom. You have a fantastic Chanel, keep up the good work.

  11. great work and simple! thax for the idea! i will be making this soon. i desperately need it for my shop. how can I send you some pictures of what i have made? i am jus a hobbyists.

    I really like how you call the garage "your shop" as it makes me feel pretty good about myself…. unfortunately for me, my wife calls the garage "storage space" grumble…grumble… As for the cart, looks cute and functional: I like it.

    Steve, just watched this video for first time, I am so going tomorrow and pick up the material for this build. Love it! Thanks

  14. David Cox disse:

    Your creation is living on, Just finished your storage cart today with a slight modification (I didn't angle the dividers for the vertical bins and ran a 1×2 across the top front) Thank You for the inspiration!

    This is a knock off from Woodcrafter magazine. I made one just like this over 15 years ago, except the one I built had a plywood saw cutting grid on it.

    Steve, I know you are an admirer of Norm Abrams. I am too but I never built one of Norm's projects. I have, however, built your lumber cart. I found the plans to be very accurate and even though I managed to screw it up by using the routed upright panel as the angled panel with the addition of some cleats and a lot of French (although not French cleats) it worked out just fine. Thank you! By the way, if you ever figure a way to build a 50 X 80 pole barn out of 2 or 3 sheets of 4 X 8 plywood, be sure to post those plans too!

  17. I just built this, this is awesome.

    Why not use OSB for this? It would be half the price. Plus you can use thinner OSB as it is more rigid.

  19. I've been looking at a lot of different lumber storage ideas and this one is my favorite, thanks for posting.

    Steve, I love your woodworking channel. I am making this cart now. I am a novice woodworker and this project is the first time I have used my router to cut dados. I am wondering where you got your metal straightedge to run your router and circular saw against?I have looked for something like this, but I have not found it. Thanks and keep putting your videos out. I love watching them and learning more about woodworking.

    Hi Steve,
    Just wanted to ask a quick question.
    I've built the lumber storage cart earlier this year and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!
    Can't say "Thank You" enough for the video and instruction.
    However, I have it all but fully loaded and struggle to move it around sometimes.
    I was thinking of adding some handles to it to help, but thought it might be a good idea to ask you if you have run into this issue and if you have any suggestions for where to mount a few handles.

    Curious how you worked out the depth of the top shelf to match the 5-degree angle? Was that worked out in Sketch-Up or something?
