One of my friends came to me an asked me to create a rolling cart to organize the Sortimo type bins that he has accumulated in his shop from Harbor Freight. After some consultation with him, I came up with this design. The case is made out of 3/4” birch plywood (1/4” back) with 1/2” birch plywood dividers. I incorporated some slat wall on the ends and capped it with a laminate top. I was able to make a shelf pin jig out of some acrylic to accommodate the custom spacing needed for the application. It was rewarding to see how extremely appreciative he was of the end product.

This is a great shop storage cart. Those sortimo cases look good and work very well. Nice work.
