In an effort to clean up the shop and get organized this year I made 4 mobile shop carts. I purchased some Rockler shop stands, wheels and tricked them out. I enclosed them with ½” MDF sides and back, and doubled up ¾” thick MDF for the top. Made some drawers and used my CNC to engrave a decorative pattern and pilot holes for the handles. On my miter saw I added some folding wings with a tee track and stop. These have worked out great, keeps things organized and the saw dust from collecting on my tools while working on projects.

Drawer’s front decorations look great. I like the metal MDF combination.

I even took it one step farther and attached a letter size zipper pouch to the back of each cabinet to hold all the manuals associated with the tools on or in that particular cart.

I am still Dreaming about the day I will have an actual shop to be able to put these in. But these would do the job for sure.
