I wanted to build a new cart that took better advantage of the space underneath my benchtop drill press. The one I had been using was a scavenged find. It looks like there are a 5 drawers, but it’s actually 3. They’re made from 3/4” material, they’re narrow and deep, and don’t have full extension slides, so they don’t function well for small parts.
The one I built is a little lower, wider, and has full extension slides so I can get to everything in the drawers. It was very simple construction (pocket screws, butt joints, glue and brad nails) out of material I had left over (MDF, plywood, maple edging).
Here’s the new one, with the old one next to it.
Top drawer with most used bits:
Middle drawer has a tray for bits used a little less often:
I still need to build a drawer for the bottom, add drawer faces, and mount the drill press. More to come….
Thanks for looking.
