Hello friends,

Here is my Handy Rolling Tool Caddy. Not my idea, this was from an issue of “The Family Handyman” magazine. But this was my re-design of their idea. I wanted an old school sort of look to mine, using some pieces to create a different form and feel.

I included their version as well in my pics section.

I added casters with breaks on mine to make things easy when working down towards the floor.

Everything is entirely made by hand except for using a power drill for the joining after a glue-up.
It holds a lot of goodies, and works perfect for my needs.

Thanks for taking a look, be well friends!

It’s a very nice design and very practical.
