Rolling Board Game Cart

Some friends of mine host a regular board game night at our office. They store their games in the basement and they have quite a lot of games so they’ve been borrowing a rough crate from me for a while. I’ve been meaning to put something together for them thats a little more civilized. 

I planned the build to make maximum use of two sheets of MDF with the least waste possible

my rough plan board


Once I had all the panels cut down it was time to round the edges. 

i used a roundover bit on a palm router to make the edges more user friendly.


On each project I do I try to learn a new skill or process. This time I decided to try pocket hole joining to pull the panels together. 

I used my Kreg pocket jig to set holes in the panels

I added pocket holes every 6 inches along each joined edge with an extra one 2 inches from the end of each edge.


The pocket hole joints worked great, once all the holes were prepped it all came together pretty well.

Once everything was put together it was time to add wheels.
