I'm sorry if this is a little off-topic, but does anyone know of any
resources (diy designs and/or components) for making portable carts and
cabinets? Basically it's to support something like portable classrooms
for my church. We are going to use a high school auditorium for Sunday
services and need an efficient way to get supplies in and out for the
worship center, hospitality/refreshments, classrooms, etc. The idea is
to create one custom cart for each room/area that can hold bins for
smaller items along with larger items such as cribs, a/v equipment,
display panels, etc. The carts will be stored in a trailer during the
rest of the week. I was picturing something like a frame of 2x4s, about
4' high, 6' long, and 2-3' deep, with some way of doing adjustable
hangers/shelving on the inside. Basically a portable closet. Oh and it
needs to be cheap :). If anyone could point out a book/website that has
designs, that would be great.
That size could be cumbersome to move.
6 ft Width means supports to keep shelved from sagging also.
Is it staying at the site or will be trucked every weekend?
Book sellers at faires etc. build book cases out of 1X10 and 1X12 pine...
that close in front for portability....however they are much narrowere in
Size is definitely something we need to consider. We will have a ramp for
them, but we will need to restrict the size based on the total weight and
other considerations like sagging. I would also have vertical members
inside to separate sections and add stability. Also, heavier stuff can go
on the bottom. What would you see as a maximum length for each section/the
whole thing? Thanks for the input, I'll try searching with bookcase as a

they welded up the frames, and used angle iron to make supports on the
sides. the ware shelves are simply 1/2" thick pieces of plywood that rest on
the angle irons.

Do a Google search on "material handling" and check Thomas Register at your
library for companies in that kind of business. You can probably either find
some good ideas for DIY units or evn commercial types to save you a lot of
time. Your call, and good luck.
