Miter Stand and Rolling Storage Carts

Submitted by danicarby on Sat, 04/29/2017 - 11:21

I'm so happy that I found the plans for Ana's miter stand and rolling carts!  It was just what I needed for my garage shop... so everything can be organized and stored compactly but things can pull open and expand when I have a project (which is all the time, actually).

The actual miter stand was super easy to build - the carts took a few days working non-stop (when the kids permitted).


I made a few obvious changes from the plans:

-made deeper shelves on one of the carts

-added drawers on one of the carts

-added ped board on the end caps of miter stand


Something I didn't consider before building this was the slope of our garage floor.  There's a 3" difference from one end of the legs to the other so I had to use riser blocks to get everything perfectly level.  Unfortunately there's no way to level the carts as they aren't stationary but they slide in/out just fine.


I'd recommend this build to everyone!  Check Home Depot clearance often for deals on plywood!

Estimated Cost
It's hard to say as I used wood I had on hand, tried to buy clearance, etc. I'm estimating $200.
