Cube CPU Cart as a Crafting Cart

Submitted by dtmak on Sun, 05/17/2020 - 08:22

I built the Cube CPU Cart plan to make this cart for my wife's crafting materials. It was a good beginner project and my first working with MDF. The MDF was heavy and cutting it produced more sanding dust than sawdust. Finishing the MDF - sanding, painting, varnishing - was more involved than working with plywood or wood also, but the finish was much smoother - if you take the time to sand the primer, paint, and varnish.

I purchased inexpensive 1x8" boards for the shelves. Next time, I'll invest in some better wood for the shelves though since the generic board I got didn't stay flat.

Cutting and construction was a day project. Sanding and finishing took an additional 1.5 days to let coats dry.

It was a fun project and now I have a request to make a second one for my daughter!

Thanks for sharing the plan.
