I am super excited to team up with CedarSafe to create another project with cedar. Last year I created a cedar closet for pet supplies. Since I sold that home my rental has no space and I needed a place for all my pet supplies. So I create a diy pet storage cart on wheels. What’s great about this DIY its made from cedar planks, it smells amazing and it can be pushed anywhere around the kitchen.
- Cedar planks
- 2×2 6 feet long
- Caster wheels
- Wood Screws
- Miter Saw
- Wood Glue
- Screw driver
Measurements for Cutting
- 1 1/2″ plywood @ 34″ x 18″
- 4 – 2 by 2 @ 16 inches
- cedar planks 18 inches
- cedar fence pickets 35 inches
My miter saw does not cut wide pieces of plywood and I don’t own a power saw yet, so I went to my HomeDepot and the sweet people there cut the plywood and (2 by 2’s ). Most of supplies were purchased at HomeDepot.
I drilled a hole and attached all the 2 by 2’s to each edge of the plywood. You will need a helper to hold the leg while drilling a small hole in each 2 by 2 for the screw. I coated all the screws with wood glue. This makes it stronger. Take a Philips head and tighten all the screws.
Take the cedar planks and measure all the different lengths with a pencil. Take the plank and insert in miter saw to cut.
Drill a small hole for screw. Attach the cedar planks with 1/2 inch screw. Two screws at each end of plank. Repeat this on all sides.
Attach caster wheels on all 4 edges of the base. Use a 1/2 inch screw.
We are so excited for our pet storage cart. The cart is movable! It can be wheeled anywhere in the house. The caster wheels are soft and don’t scratch the wood. The most amazing part of this cedar cart is the sweet smell of the cedar wood. Cedar wood aroma is perfect for dog items such as dog collars, leads plus any other pet food supplies that get dirty or smelly. It is the perfect cat food storage and dog food holder as well.
The cart is pretty big and can store multiple leashes, blankets, extra dog treats, cat, dog food and cat litter.
If you end up making one for your pet or household items send me pictures or a link. Love to see it. For more information about cedar check out CedarSafe. For more cedar projects check out my pet cedar closet.
