  • Fantastic cart, I will definitely be building one.

  • This looks like a very good design; thank you for sharing! Unfortunately, wood prices are so high right now, building this anytime soon with new lumber will be cost prohibitive. However, I may have enough remnants from other projects to build a slightly smaller version. Thank again!

  • Note:  Project Plan is great, but has the following errors:  
    -purchase list states you need 2 qty 2x6x8', but it should be 2 qty 2x6x10' (need four quantity 60" [5'] pieces), 
    -purchase list states you need 7 qty 2x4x8s, but the cut list is short 2 qty 31 1/2" pieces, so you need 8 quantity 2x4x8,  
    -the castors are doubled up on the list.  No big deal, but note that you need larger diameter screws/screw heads and or washers for the castors.

  • Very well done!

  • I just finished building this. My only suggestion is to either trim the turf so there is no overhang or so that it covers the 2x4s underneath as well otherwise the side 1x6s are cambered.

  • Great video and good size of workbench, perfect for my place since it is very small.

  • Wish I could upload a picture with the physical cut list overlay on the (5) 2"x4"x8' boards from using CutList Optimizer (https://www.cutlistoptimizer.com/). It helped me figure out the best board allocation (minimize waste and another trip to the big box store at $6.52 per 2x4x8' as of March 6, 2021).

    To keep the ends clean, I took 1/4" off each end first. Wish I could upload a photo with the physical cut list it produced for an easy layout but here are the numbers from the CutList Optimizer:

    A: 20 3/4" --- B: 44 3/4" --- C: 33 1/2" --- D: 17 3/4"

    1: A, A, C, D
    2: A, A, C, D
    3: B, B
    4: B, B
    5: C, C

    I ended up buying another 2x4 sheet of MDF for the bottom shelf and added four locking casters (rated at 200 pounds ~$5.50/ea) from Harbor Freight for mobility (adds 3 3/8" to height). Heading out to the garage now . . .
