Plywood carrying tool

Editor's Choice - Sep 01, 2015

Necessity is the mother of invention.
I’m in the process of building a 12’ X 12’
Add on lean to shed strictly for woodworking.
I had to carry several sheets of 3/4" treated plywood for the floor, by myself, quite a little distance. I needed to come
Up with a solution to do that, so this is what I came up with.
It really worked out well, I was able to use my legs to lift it, instead of my back.
It’s made out of pallet wood 2×4 s and a half inch thick slat board off the same pallet. The dowel was a leftover piece
I’ve had for years.
Your able to adjust the height to maximize your lift, and it worked out really well.
The best part, is I only have about .35
Cents in it !!!
Thanks to everyone for sharing your knowledge with me!

Happy Woodchips!
