Homemade storage cart for doors and freedom panels

I got tired of having to lean my doors against something when I take them off. I still need to put carpet over the wood, but for less than 30 bucks I can keep them out of the way now.

Would defiantly get the carpet on there but that's awesome! Wouldn't happen to have a write up or dimensions for this?

Nice, looks very sturdy.

I may go this route in the future, I made one out of scrap materials I had laying around: Check out what I made to store my doors and windows

Well I guess I cannot edit my orginal post but here goes.

The bottom measures 30x30, the center post is 42" tall and the upper frame is 12x30. I did cut the upper frame on a 5 degree cut. Everthing is 2x4 except the portion right in front of the bottom of the door and I used a 2x6 with a 1x2 for the door to rest on. I did notch cut the bottom and upper frames and vertical support, probably could of gotten away from doing this. But if figured it would give it a lot more strength. I purchased a small set of swivel casters with rubber wheels and it works good on the concrete floor. I did cover all the boards with some outdoor carpet. I had the screws at home but I have less than $40 including the carpet.

Material list (all from lowes):
1-2x6x8'
1-1x2x8'
3-2x4x8'
Box of 1-1/4" wood screws (for joining the notched 2x4's)
Box of 3" wood screws (for the joining the 2x6 to the 2x4's)
4 small swivel rubber casters.
1 bunge cord to keep doors held in place.

Here are some more pictures.

Awesome, thanks for posting this. I'm going to build that this weekend, but with a modification to allow me to put the rear doors on as well - probably on the inside, requiring me to extend the cart outwards slightly. I'll let you know how that works out.

Let me know and post some pictures, I might be doing the samething for the girlfriends 4 door also. Something that could be done is like you said to widen it some and add 2 more vertical supports one on the end. You would then end up having two doors face each other on each side. Might get pretty long though.

Wish I would have seen this sooner. I built a set for my doors also. I did add some carpet I had.

4-2x4's and 4 castors, and $31.00 later...

Here's mine...

I was thinking this, then assembling the post structure for the doors to lean against.

Having constructed the hard top dolly already, I know I could make a door dolly, but getting a head start always helps.

Check the #7 post, from having it now for about a month I did add one more 2x4 in between the two vertical 2x4's.
