DIY door carts

Looking to make some carts for my doors this weekend. Wall space in the garage is at a premium and the wife has most of it claimed.
If you have made your own that function well, would you mind posting several pictures? I have an idea of how I want it but am not sure how to safely brace it so it doesn't collapse. I'm getting the moving carts that already have wheels.
Thank you in advance.

I did search the forum by several different key words. Found some but they were usually a single picture, with the doors on. Hopefully someone has multiple pictures at different angles with and w/o doors.

The dolly is 18x30, got it from Harbor Freight. Four shelf supports screwed into it to support two 48" 2x4's wrapped with some diamond plate foam mat stuff I had laying around and topped with some scrap wood I had laying around for stability. The lips holding the doors on were a single 36" 1x1 cut in half and screwed into either end of the dolly and wrapped in pipe foam. Took me about 15-20 minutes to put the whole thing together.

Granted mine is a 2 door, that should give you a jumping off point.

Mine is extremely similar to yours, made in 16 minutes last Saturday from scrap I had in the basement and a carpeted furniture dolly I've had for decades (Home Depot, about 20 bucks.)

Only difference in mine was I just screwed the 2x4s in from the bottom with two lag screws each, and I used scraps of 1x4 along the edges as lips, and didn't bother to pad them.

The doors pretty much stand up by themselves. In fact, I used just the dolly by itself a couple of times. You can stand the doors up and strap the tops together. But with the wooden poles it's more stable. Still strap them together with a nylon web strap and Fastex buckle from my backpacking closet.

Good pics, very helpful. Thank you for posting and helping me out. Since the doors are off this weekend it would be a good time to make this happen.

Finished mine today
Too bad it's been raining all day and I can't take the doors off to use it.

Here is a thread I made a bit ago about the issue and the recommendations of members, and what I ultimately made

4 Door Storage Solution?

Pretty easy, straightforward construction. I was going to do a step-by-step, but it was honestly fairly simple so I didn’t bother to post it

Mine





the rails at the bottom have a groove in them that the lip of the door sits in
