Rolling Tools Storage and workspaces. These are made of 2×4 pine and hardboard primarily. I love the cabinet and rolling surfaces, very handy for making a small shop work well.

Sure was, I had to look it up, but it was from Wood Magazine October 2007.

This is great! I like the use of vertical space, leaving a smaller footprint. It would work well in my shop too. Can you post the dimensions?
Thanks!

Joey,
It is called the bench-Tool System from Wood Magazine Plans. (Overall dimensions of tool cabinet: 28” wide, 25” deep, 86” high Overall dimensions of tool base: 22” wide, w3” deep, 37” high) It is in issue 179 of Wood Magazine (October 2007). I made two rolling bases because I used them as outfeed support for my table saw when needed, so I changed the length of the vertical supports to keep the top just short of my table saw. I also used pocket screws instead of how the plan was written, but only because I had the Kreg tools stuff at my disposal.

You can make them easily in a weekend if you hurry.

I’ve got one of these too. They are great! Every time someone comes to the shop they comment on it. Good job on yours!

Nice cabinet and well done! How do you like your Ridgid sander? I am thinking about getting the same one.

The rigid sander works pretty well, but in order to keep the dust down, I connect it to the dust collector instead of the shop vac. The DC has much more airflow.

Just looking at the design, it seems like you could remove the wooden shelf supports and replace them with straight hangers off of the pegboard, thereby giving yourself adjustable shelving. Cut off the ends of the shelf supports and they could be mounted flush between the vertical supports so the unit remains stable. Just a thought.

The plan called for wooden supports, and it is hard to see, but they are movable, although not easily. You have a great idea.

Knock on wood…I have a similiar design that I combined from wood and shopnotes…it was actually my first project. I have my tools bolted to a platform that slides in and out of the cabinet, and then attaches to a collapsible workbench…I also went ahead and modified mine with the cord holder attachments. I also used pegboard for the sides for even more storage…ill have to take some pics and put it in my projects folder cause I dont have it up on here yet…

I didnt have the book, and only had seen pictures, so I designed mine in sketchup, though it is the same idea…

-- If you can't build it, code it. If you can't code it, build it. But always ALWAYS take a picture.

Have your say...
