My inspiration for this project came from Wood magazine’s “Bench-Tool System” although my end result will be a horizontal storage system.
Instead of a mobile tool cart I opted for the air compressor cart, it’s made from pine shipping crates that I “harvested” from work. It rides on locking swivel casters so I can move it to the job. The compressor is totally enclosed making it much more quiet in the shop. The top is covered with laminate so it’s not a problem if it gets a little wet I do some sharpening.
The removable top is going to be one of several that will have bench top tools mounted to them like this grinder. My plans are to make a long infeed and outfeed table for my planer which will also house the additional tops with other bench top tools.
