no previous part Part 1 of Rolling Shop Cart series no next part

Frame is made from 2X4 construction grade pine. All shiplapped, glued, and screwed together. The wheels are locking wheels from Harbor Freight.

(if you look close you can see the mistake I made in the upper left hand corner…I decided to just leave it)

1/2” BCX plywood for top and pegboard for the sides….

Next up is the drawers. I plan on making two pull-out drawers in the front. I’ve completed one of them so far (minus the drawer front). The bottom of the drawer is pegboard to allow the saw dust to fall through…

now to put the drawer slides on…These are 1/2” drawer slides that I found. They work perfectly but I dont know how to install these kind…..if anyone has any insight on that..that’d be great!

Next blog I’ll show the drawer installation (if I figure it out) and the finishing touches!

Great Cart!! You never can have too many of them to help you in a mobile shop!
