24 x 48 inch material storage cart

This is just a simple cart for storing material that is 24" by 48" I made this because I needed a cart for my cnc mill that has a 24 x 48 bed. The materials that I had for it where leaned up against a wall and that was unsightly, so I designed and made this cart. concept to cradle was less than 24 hours.
these plans are for using 19/32" thick plywood. Figure out what casters you will be using and add holes for them, or just decide to use wood screws to attach them.
Cut out 2 sides, 6 braces, and a base. The dxf files have labeled layers. There are 3 layers: .61 inch pocket: these features are green. They are for through holes to house wood screws.
; .25 inch pocket: these are to be milled out at .25" deep into the material. These features are yellow. These are mortise pockets.
; Profile .61 inch, These features are red. these are the inner and outer cuts that make up the boundaries of the part. they are to be cut through with tabs in the case of a mill.
I designed this assembly to be used with a .25 inch end-mill.
Use wood glue in all the mortise joints and use wood screws in the holes. I pre-drilled the holes for the wood-screws to ensure no splitting happened. It's a nifty little cart. it allowed me to clean up my shop.
