Carrying the plywood yourself is a pain. Here is a help that allows you to roll it instead. Just attach this caddy to the edge of the table, tilt the sheet on the wheels and that’s it.

The caddy will fit 1/2 “to 3/4” thick plywood. Its sides are not glued together, they slide only on the bolts. I put the 7 ″ lawnmower wheels on my caddy so I can roll it on an uneven driveway or in my yard when I unload plywood from my truck. Large wheels are also ideal for a workshop, as they roll more easily than small wheels. Of course, you can use wheels of almost any size.

To make the caddy, temporarily join its three parts, flush at the bottom. Drill a 1/2 ″ hole for the board through all three pieces, 1 ″ upward from the bottom and centered between the ends. Drill two 5/16 “holes for the 1/4” mounting bolts. Place the holes 2 “from the bottom and 2” from each end. Disassemble the parts.

To assemble the caddy, insert a washer on the axle bolt and slide the bolt through a wheel. Thread a nylon bushing, then slide the bolt through the hole in the axle. Insert the other nylon bushing, the other wheel, the washer and two nuts. Lock the nuts together, leaving approximately 1/4 “on either side of the spacer. On the 1/4” bolts, slide a lock washer and fender washer, then slide them through the 5/16 “holes. more washers of the fender and thread the knobs of the mask. —Ken Bailey
