  • December 18, 2015

It's time to address the black hole we call under the bed. With this under bed storage cart, not only will you have easy access to the goods, it will look great too! (Unlike those ugly plastic bins)

These plans and design are done by Rogue Engineer. For more great plans like this visit RogueEngineer.com!

  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Large 68c5c19d 829e 4905 a778 04b0b4e6af06

      Cutting the Boards: Cut the boards to the dimensions shown in the cut list diagram. A table saw is required to cut the plywood bottom and rip part of the 1x6 down to proper widths.

    2. Step: 2

      Large f9bbe89b dd27 4179 bbc1 08b9eb0c055b

      Assemble Box Pre-drill and assemble box (sides, back and bottom) using wood glue and 1-1/2" wood screws. (Don't attach the front yet)

    3. Step: 3

      Large 5fd61976 1d16 41aa 85f0 c6307acb1794

      cont'd: Attach Side Rails Pre-drill and attach the side rails using wood glue and 1-1/2" wood screws. It may be worthwhile to counter sink the pre-drilled holes as to not risk splitting the wood. Note: Even though you see the wheels installed in this picture it would be wise to wait until after the cart is finished.
