Almost looks like a rolling “Craftsman” commercial!!! 36 inch x 36 inch oak plywood on both sides. 8 inch heavy duty casters under a 2×4 frame. Plywood surrounded by 3/4 inch x 1.5 inch solid oak. inside of plywood is 3 inch strips of oak plywood all around edges, glued and screwed for stiffness. Center section is all 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch ratchets and extensions, held in 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch and 1 inch schedule 40 PVC pipe. Left of center is all SAE wrenches and sockets, right of center is all metric wrenches and sockets. Inside top edge, opposite front panel is 1/4 inch sockets SAE and Metric likewise. 3/8 inch allen socket head sockets just inside top of front panel. A 3 drawer cubicle cabinet is in center between plywood panels. Screwdrivers, pliers, nut-drivers all going in left open space behind drawers. Wrenches mounted on large cup hooks. 1/2 inch sockets across bottom of panel. Makes it easy to grap what you need, easier than drawers or bags/boxes! All wood coated with 3 coats of poly-varnish. socket holders made of vaious types of wood with appropriate size dowels, coated with danish oil. Still a few odds and ends to attach to opposite side yet such as air tools and the like. Pretty heavy (hate to think how much it really weighs) but rolls okay. Probably will add a 3/4 inch conduit handle like a lawn-mower handle that will fold up and latch just above top of drawers.
