    The new shop has a bit more room for material storage than the last one. I’m still trying to get moved into the space, but moving some of my plywood scraps that I brought from the last house has been a pain in the …

    I spent some time over the weekend cleaning up a corner of the shop to put the air compressors and to build a swinging cart for storing plywood. I got the idea off of the interwebs, but as usual, I built it to fit my needs.

    I can swing the cart all the way around to point out the front garage door for loading, then I can swing it all the way up against the wall for storage.

    I bought nice big 4″ castors so that it rolls really well. Those and the gas pipe for the ‘hinge’ were the most expensive parts. The rest is just 2x 1/2″ pieces of plywood and some 2x4s. I did have some scrap hardy board that I put on the bottom so the plywood slides easier.



    Love it, bar keeps it from tipping and wheels let you load and clean under it…

    I have two steel racks in there and I have my < sheet goods on the end a few inches off the ground, Love being organized and easy accessibility!



    The hinge is actually awesome. I have a similar thing next to my wife’s car in the garage, but I have 4 swiveling casters, so it constantly tries to fight me.

    Nice! Gives me ideas for the MPCNC and future Lowrider storage… thinking of a Murphy Bed style of contraption… hmmm…


    i store mine in the desert sun and only get around to using them until they are completely warped to shit about 3 years later. Built a few cabinets for some d130 JBL’s out of my wavy-ply. Kind of like a sleeper drag racer of home audio.



    Ahh, The Wood Whisperer to the rescue!  That’s pretty neat.

    It was originally a plan in woodcraft magazine. There’s been quite a few revisions on it.

    This version is mine.
