== Personal Work Carts ==
The idea of allowing members to bring in personal work carts to use as a portable work bench/secure storage has been generally well received. We should define some ground rules
+
[[Personal Work Carts]] <- This concept now has its own page!
* Cart restrictions by membership level (Matt: These are just my thoughts, final rules would obviously need to be approved by member vote)
+
 
** Thinker Level: No cart or locker. However, we may be able to do something similar by providing a small wall of bins that would allow these members some personal storage for small/light items (electronics parts, fabric/sewing supplies, etc...)
+
** Maker Level: Choose between bringing in a cart OR use of a locker.
+
** Booster Level: May bring a cart AND use a locker.
+
* Members may bring in a store-bought cart or build their own.
+
** DIY carts can be made of any material (wood, metal, plastic, PVC pipe, etc...) as long as they meet the size requirements, have caster wheels and are structurally safe
+
** We should design a set of "standard" plans that new members can use as a starting point and either build as-is or modify as required.
+
** Bonus points and
+
* Need to define maximum dimensions
+
** Clearly something like [http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00931011000P?prdNo=4&blockNo=4&blockType=G4 this]is TOO big.
+
** Matt proposes a nice round 2' x 3' maximum footprint
+
** Height will be  more difficult to standardize for store-bought units as they will vary.
+
* Some examples at various prices
+
** Nice multi-purpose cart from Sears on sale now for $129 [http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00959496000P?prdNo=2&blockNo=2&blockType=G2 Link]
+
** Cheaper option with less bells and whistles from Harbor Freight [http://www.harborfreight.com/large-steel-service-cart-with-locking-drawer-90428.html Link]
+
** Lowes had a nice 5 drawer tool box base with a plastic cart top for $89 but I can't find it online. I'll try to stop by the store and snap a pic.
