Sheet Goods DollyComments (0)
This article is from Issue 48 of Woodcraft Magazine.
The older I get, the harder it is to manage full sheets of
plywood and MDF. To take some of the pain out of handling sheet materials, I
turned a $1 yard sale skateboard into a valuable shop assistant. As shown in
the drawing, I notched both ends of the deck so that the edge of the panel
could lay flat on the board.
I can now easily maneuver a 4×8' panel around my shop. When the panel is centered on the board, I find that I can even rock the skateboard enough to skip over electrical cords. (If you need to traverse gravel, grass, or other rough terrain, look for an all-terrain board with oversized wheels.)
