    Had one of those outdoor canopies that blew over in a rainstorm, and had all this left over metal side panels left as the canopy ripped and couldn't find a replacement.

    From reading some other posts, decided I should make a wood cart out of the pieces.....just finished one, and have enough metal left over to make another one. :)

    Didn't have to spend a dime on materials as it was all stuff I had laying around the house. (Brackets/casters/screws, etc...)

    It wont hold a huge amount of wood, and I put a few small rails on the top for kindling and smaller splits.

    For the summer, I am going to add a small tray on the top as we eat out on the porch all the time, and it can be a server table/drinks, etc...

    Not the prettiest thing in the world, but just happy I could actually build something myself.

    Not bad a'tall - and dual use! Is that just screwed together with angle brackets? Sturdy?

    I was thinking to get some angle iron and weld one up myself.

    Yes, just used angle brackets on the bottom and sides, and put a few small braces in the back for extra support.
    The casters are all I had lying around.....should have larger ones for the porch as it doesn't roll too well.
    I loaded it up a few weeks ago, and seemed to take the weight of the wood pretty well. Just going to keep it by the door on the porch vs schlepping to the pile all the time.
    Thanks.
