I have two objects that are planes and when I attempt to apply the Boolean, the modifier simply does not work.

I have been racking my brain and searching the internet to try and figure out why the Boolean modifier is not working for me.

I have applied rotation, scale, and location.

I also was able to have the modifier work with two simple planes.

Any and all help is welcome, thank you!

Edit* My scene is very basic, I haven't tweaked any settings. I am attempting to build a cleaning cart. The first photo is a reference image of what I am shooting for. The second photo shows my first draft of the cart and the new one I am working on.

The cleaning cart reference.

My entire scene including my draft cart and the current one being worked on.

the problem is in the face orientation of your parts. Blue is ok, red is wrong.

Repair the face orientation and it will work.
