Rolling Lumber Cart Downloadable Plan
In a small garage or basement shop, floor space isn't the only real estate that can be in short supply - walls get filled up, too. If there isn't room for a wall-mounted lumber rack in your shop, here's a rolling lumber cart that offers more than 70 square feet of shelf space, a separate compartment for storing sheet goods and a roomy bin on top for cutoffs. Heavy-duty shelf standards and brackets keep it all high and dry.

So when I ran into this plan, it had everything on it that I needed ... almost. So I took the plan and have modified it. I only had 2' not the 3 or whatever and I wanted a storage spot for our deck furniture cushion which I put on the top. and built up the sides so that they should stay put.
I put all the ideas into a sketchup design and it is more or less waiting for me to build it. As far as that goes, it has now percolated up to 3rd on my list. Hope to get to it within a month.
All of these plans a very detailed and this one is no exception. It is easy to find the parts that are required due to the project. The illustrations and drawings are well done and there are tips and tricks buried within them as well.
I'm kind of between a beginner and intermediate in skill level.

Those shelf standards and brackets are costly. I am trying various ways of support material of different sizes. Also, having shelf supports poking out at the ends concerns me, especially around eye level.
On the plans: I used 1/2" plywood to keep the weight down, and so I could handle the material. It serves to keep the structure squared up. There aren't enough specifications for hardware (bolts, lag screws) so you have to create your own shopping list.
Assembly is a little tricky. I could see that once the cart was assembled it would be difficult to put on the casters. Laying it on the side, then standing it wouldn't work. I braced each section vertical with large blocks, then raised the whole thing on more blocks to connect it all. That left enough space underneath to attach the casters.
Since I had plywood to spare, I added a piece on the bottom frame on one side so I can store some materials on end.
On the whole, how this fits in the garage/workshop layout is still a question, since I probably won't want to move it around often. But the plan itself (drawings, etc.) was fairly easy to follow.

Plans were pretty brief, mostly a blow up of the finished cart, with no discussion of tips or hints at pulling the cart together. The picture itself should have told me the finished product will be huge and heavy, but (6) 300lb capacity casters???
The major issue is the cost, upwards of $300 if you follow the materials list. You can develop workarounds, but then why buy the plan set.
