Kettle Lumber Cart

Furnished content.

Kettle Lumber Cart Short Version:
I made a lumber cart.

Long Version:
As I found myself in need of a way to effectively store all of my scrap and unused lumber, I found myself in need of a Lumber Cart. Many of the designs I found all shared the common aspect of being able to hold a full 4'x8' sheet of plywood.The fact is that I never store sheets that size. If I have a full piece of lumber that size, it gets used up, and it is the off cuts that I need to store for a future project. So after doing some research on smaller options, I came across this concept:Lumber Cart by Wood Working for Mere Mortals
I agreed with many of the facts he set out, especially with the limited space and never needing to store a full sheet of plywood.However, I did not like the angled piece nor the long shelves. Just personal choice. Additionally, I needed to store my assembly tables (Link coming as soon as that project is finished, my blog has build updates) somewhere.So what I came up with was this project.
  • It can store a 4'x4' sized sheet goods, up to a 4'x6' if you really want to.
  • It can store a significant amount of smaller cutoffs, up to 6' long, in two large side bays.
  • It can store a lot of smaller 3'-4' cutoffs in the central large bay.
  • It has a basic built in drawer for those really small cutoffs that are a pain to store.
  • And of course it stores both of my 2'x6' Paulk-Inspired Assembly Tables.
Hope yall enjoy this unique take on a Lumber Cart.
