I built this a year ago..

The bins are suspended with cleats that are 2-3/4” apart. The spacing allows the short and taller bins to be swapped 2 for 1 (pic #2). I used cleats because I don’t have anything that would make a dado in a single pass.

I didn’t have enough stuff to fill three columns of trays so I used leftover plywood scraps to make a couple shelves.

The casters are Ikea. The trays are Stanley. Harbor freight sells cheaper trays but the dimensions are slightly different and not interchangeable if suspending the trays.

Nice cart. I have been using the HF boxes and been thinking about doing something similar.

Thanks all.

There’s lots of these out on the internet so I can’t take credit for originality. The hardest part was figuring out the spacing – 2-3/4”

If I had to do over, I would use HF bins. They are cheaper in price and quality but I don’t think it makes a difference for a hobbyist like me. Also, HF sells smaller caddies that are 1/2 the width of the short caddies.

Dymo industrial Yellow labels don’t stick to the handles very well.

I’m debating on removing the 2X4 wheel sled on the bottom and maybe mounting on a wall…
