Cart for Smoke Vault

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My smoke vault proved a bit awkward to carry about to where it was needed, so I built a cart for it...

Details on construction can be found here on the Lumberjocks woodworking site.

Thats a great looking cart and a great idea for moving the Vault around.

Yes, that's the 24". I've been very pleased with it.

Discovered a nice bonus while using the cart for the first time this morning (live thread here), the cart raises the smoker to a much more convenient working height - no more stooping over!

When I purchased my Smoke Vault, I experimented with some fairly heavy duty casters that swivel and lock. The experiment worked so good, I just kept them on. I do like the looks of your rack though. Thanks for sharing.

I thought of casters too, but figured the legs were too flimsy to handle them. (The legs have some flex to them, which isn't a problem when the unit is just standing there.) I also didn't like the idea of drilling into the leg and thus cracking the powder coating and possibly giving corrosion a head start, which is why I went with the clamping scheme described in the construction narrative.

You're right about the legs being flimsy. I braced them with some 1 1/2 inch thin angle that already had holes and slots in. I don't know what it was designed for but like I said it was an experiment. I just roll it across the garage floor, out the door and hook it up right beside the garage (all smooth floor).

I have to wheel my unit out of the garage and down a slight (and slightly rough) grassy slope to my patio. It's not very far, but casters simply won't work. (On top of the other issues.)

Your design sound clever though!
