Building a shop cart

Building the base of the cart

Building the base of the cart

The first step of the woodworking project is about building the base of the cart. In order to get a professional result, we recommend you to attach two 2×6 slats to 1×4 braces. Drill pilot holes through the braces and secure them to the slats with 1 1/4″ screws.

Add waterproof glue to the joints in order to enhance the rigidity of the structure. Make sure the corners are right-angled and leave the glue to dry out for several hours.

The next step of the woodworking project is to build the components of the cart. Mark the cut lines on the 3/4″ plywood sheets and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper in order to get a professional result.

Add 1×1 trims to the side of the cart in order to enhance the rigidity of the structure. Lock the trims into place with screws and waterproof glue. Work with attention in order to prevent mistakes and to get a professional result.

Fitting the wheels

Add the caster wheels to the base of the shop cart. Work with attention and place the wheels with great care, otherwise the whole structure won’t be rigid enough on the long run. Add a nice 3/4″ plywood trim to the front of the cart to add character to the project.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the bar from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain. Place the cart in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
