This is my first rolling cart.

I made this based on plans I found on the internet, to be used as an AC cart.

The picture with the door is where the cart and the AC will be resting with the AC compressor hanging out the window of the door.

I still need to build the riser which I should get to this week.

Once that’s done, I’ll enclose my small shop with plastic and I should have temperature control for the summer.

Oh, and surprising to me – IT’S FREAKIN LEVEL LOL!!!

I feel really good about that :)

I also got to use my new HOMEMADE bar clamps :)

Here are more pis on my blog:

I screwed up a few things – the top I mis-measured and need to re-do one day, the under platform of the top I fudged and used 1/2” instead of 3/4”, I had to be cause I screwed up having HD cross cut the ply in half – and should have been done in 3rds :(

Fortuantely, I had an extra piece pf 3/4 for another project that I had to “borrow”.

Good stuff! I’m just getting ready to build a couple of small carts for my shop. I may steal your idea. :) Thanks for sharing!

Any time – if you want the plans I can send them or post a link – they were very easy compared to others I was thinking of making.

Was a great first time project

That’ll come in handy. You might need more than one though…Be great for a benchtop tools like a drill press, bandsaw, surface planer, jointer, disc or drum sander, scroll saw….. you get the picture…Well done !

Thx kdc…

Yeppers – already working on the wife for the next one to build.

First, gotta finish the riser and enclosing the shop for summer temperature control!

Should be done this week.

Plus I have plans for the middle of the cart – drawers and storage and peg board for the sides.

Update – here’s the cart with the AC unit – it works really good. I don’t even have to block off the shop. But it’s not top of the heat yet so we’ll see
