There several posts on this site on workshop carts with some very similar to this one. I found the plans for mine on the Family Handyman website, where very detailed plans including material list and cut plans are available for free download. I posted the link to their site below. I did make a few changes (don’t we all). My need was to not only use the cart for transporting material, but to function as a work cart to hold tools and work in process that I’m using at that time. To do this, I left the top open so instead of a shelf, I have an open top box. Most of my projects are small wooden toys and I’m making 10 or so at a time. The open top allows me to segregate parts as I work on them. I can still lay large pieces across the cart if I need to transport them from my wood rack to wherever their needed. I added the middle shelf specifically for storage of my table saw sled, fence and miter gauge. Depending on which accessory I’m using on the table saw, I store the other two on the middle shelf. The bottom shelf holds printer paper boxes which are filled with completed toys. I also added a pull handle. My only regret was I didn’t make it sooner. The cart really improves my work flow and besides the actual work pieces, it allows me to keep things such as scales, marking pencils or other needed tools right with me as I use my band saw, table saw etc., and I’m not close to my workbench.
