This is a woodworking model of nesting trays from Minwax. Each entity is a seperate component so that they can be measured and manipulated individually.
This Shaker dining room tray is adapted from Ejner Handbergs book Shop Drawings for Shaker Furniture and Woodenware, vol. 1 (Berkshire House). It was a feature article in issue 5 of Woodworking Magazine and constructed by editor Christopher Schwarz.
Few shop chores rival the awkwardness of moving large sheet goods by yourself. And it is nearn impossible to get them up on sawhorses without help (or the horses skittering across the floor). You will never again have to cajole reluctant family members into helping if you use this sheet goods mover system.
As I get older, the sheet stock that I have to man handle into and around the shop seems to get heavier and heavier. So rather than continue to rely on brute strength, I built this wheeled helper.
One of the more awkward things to handle around the shop is big sheets of plywood. With my bad shoulder it is almost impossible but with this handy plywood carrying device its a breeze. Put the plywood in the notch, pick it up with the handle and balance the top with your other hand. Now that is a lot better than the alternative!
