Rolling Tool Chest

Here’s the tool chest I built so I would be able to bring along all the tools I need when working outside the shop – around the house or at my daughters’ house and apartment when requested.

I got inspired when I saw those new store bought tool totes on wheels, but was knocked down by the price tag. Since I had everything in the shop, mine didn’t cost me a dime !

I mounted the chest on an hand truck using French cleats so I would be able to hang the chest on a wall when in the shop to use it as a typical wall tool chest and freely use the hand truck as needed.

Any drawer can be left in the shop to leave room for larger tools and they all fit in any slotted location.

More photos and all construction details can be found from this page of my blog.

Thanks for looking.

I simply love the drawers, such a simple idea.
That will be great on the move.
