Cleaning up basement storage area

Being short, it was a job loading and unloading the basement storage, so I decided to make it a little easier. I got some garage door rails and wheels and made a rolling drawer with a fold down panel in the passenger side, anchored the rails to the floor, removed the plastic trays and made panels to fill in the tray area. The drawer will roll out both sides of the basement. Works great for us old folks.

Great Job! I especially like the fold-down panel at the end. The high sides keep things from falling off, but the panel makes it easy to get things out.

Any idea of how much weight it will carry? What did you use for stops?

No idea what it will hold weight wise but with 6 gd rollers on it, it should hold quite a bit, we put 4 rocking lawn chairs in it, the outside tv, pinbox Tailgater mount, flag pole for pinbox. The drawer is held in place with pins inserted in holes drilled thru the track and into the floor.

Not much talent required, just saws, drill press and mig welder.
