Initial thought process:
I did some searching for designs and found a picture of a wood storage cart that looked quite nice at ShopNotes. The actual plans for the cart aren’t online so I improvised based on the photo and cutting diagram. I also adapted it to 6 feet as I have limited space in my garage and seldom work with anything larger than that. My ‘schematics’ (really just math to see how much wood to buy) are below:
[Edit] Also found an underdocumented spreadsheet and a VCarve file I used to verify the measurements I came up with (though I ended up shifting the shelves down a bit so I’d have a 5th open-top compartment):
Some build shots:
I probably went a little overboard with the screws and glue; the thing is built like a tank. Finished shots:
