Built this over a weekend, and it has made a huge impact on how organized I can keep my shop. My only real criticisms of this plan are the dimensions of the sheet goods storage bin end cap (too big, if I understand the directions clearly) and the fact that pocket screws aren't always the best way to hold some of these joints. Otherwise love the plan!

Easy build and not too difficult to modify. As mentioned you can get away with less ply and in my case, saved a whole third sheet of 3/4 by using scraps on hand. Thanks!!

Well written instructions.
Instead of using 1x3 and 1x2, I purchased a 1x6 and ripped it to the dimensions needed. Saving a little bit of money in the process. I used a nail gun with 2" nails instead of the 4d finish nails.
The number of 2 1/2" pocket screws appears on the material list as (22). But that number is incorrect. I think it should be 84.
Another commenter stated they used 1 1/2" pocket screws instead of 1 1/4". This doesn't work for each application of that screw, it will poke through the material in some cases.

Don't always have the money for plans with every other expense. Its nice these are provided. I would be curious what Norman built and if there is a picture. This cart as far as I can tell is for cut offs from projects. He seems to have built lumber storage, which normally are racks. I will probably modify dimensions, but the build will be the same.

The plan is very precise. You can load a lot of lumber on this cart.

The best cart I've seen online. However, I would like to see the plywood storage section bigger to hold more plywood. Also, there is no mention as to when the casters are attached. They just suddenly appear. It's now 9 days later and I've added 5 1/2 inches to the plywood storage section. I've had to make many modifications, not because of your plans but because the lumber available at Lowes and Home Depot is from China and splits when driving in the pocket-hole screws. Also I'm a purist and never use nails in any woodworking project. Screws and glue and dowels is my motto. So far I'm 3/5 of the way finished with the cart. Well, here it is a few weeks later. All finished! I have stored all of the lumber and 20 sheets of plywood of different thickness. Right now the cart and it's contents weigh approx. 1500 lbs or more. It will not roll. But, that will improve as I start to build projects and use up some of the material. Thanks for the plans as this is by far the best design available on the Web. High again it's a few months later and I still can't roll the cart. I thought that it weighs 1,500 lbs. Now that I really look at it, I believe that it weighs in at better than 3,000lbs. I should have built the cart with at least eight casters and they should have been at least 5 inch rather than the 3 inch that I used. Even though it won't roll, it does take almost all of the lumber in my shop. Over 20 sheets of ply and endless number of solid lumber boards. Needless to say that in building the cart I made a few modifications such as 5 1/2 inch wider plywood section and a double thick bottom frame to handle the weight. I constantly show the cart to many guys in the neighborhood. All they can say is "WOW!"

My only complaint is that the 1 1/4 screws seemed too short at times. A 1 1/2 screw worked much better when I started using them instead.
