Quick Tip: Workshop Dollies

Build your own moving dollies to make life in the woodworking shop much more convenient—and much less sweaty.

Here’s how to save your aching back next time you have to move something heavy in the workshop. A workshop dolly is really just a platform on casters. You don’t need extra craftsmanship, just simple two-by-fours, wood screws, and four heavy-duty casters. For a dolly that’s good and strong, use lap joints at the corners, with the casters right below. That will help lighten your load.
