Last Christmas my father recieved a new air compressor and several nail guns. His birthday was in April, so it seemed fitting to make this for a birthday gift. the plan came out of the May edition of “Wood” magazine. It was easy to make, and has turned out to be very handy. I think I am going to make another one for me.

That would be awesome for the job site. Probably save two or three trips in and out. Good project. BTKS

Nice Job. I don’t need a compressor setup but I could use something like that for my HVLP sprayer and accessories. Thanks for the inspiration.

Me Too!
I made one for my shop from the same plans. The only thing I changed was, that I added swivel coasters on the front to make it easier to move around.

Cool, a buddy of mine who is new to wood working made this from my suggestion as well. Both of you did a god job. Not saying your new to this though.
