Designed this cart for my workshop, I had the idea 3 years ago because I needed a cart to roll around parts from machine to machine, occasionally an additional work bench, height adjustable assembly table, panel cart or drying racks when doing finishes. So I thought of a way to combine these function, but it took me 3 years of thinking to find a feasible way.
So here is the result, the MFSC (multi-function shop cart)

Since the table flips I thought of making the other side usable for glue jobs by making the parallel clamps fit in notches, this keeps my main work bench free, and glue can drip all it wants without messing up the work bench.

There is a bit more info and a video of the mechanism on my website for those who are interested.

A really nice design. The price for the plans is reasonable at 7.44 Euro, $8.68.

I am going to think about this and how it would fit in my shop.

These carts have a wonderful design that allows them to be used for multiple purposes and therefore makes them flexible and functional. You have also done a fine job on them and they are a great addition to your shop and will serve you well. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.

holy smokes those are quite the carts. mind blown by the functionality and versatility. adding dowels to make a downdraft into drying rack is so simple and genius at the same time

Outstanding design! Do you have plans for these? You should be able to sell these… I would definitely be a buyer!

I do, as Bill above kindly mentioned, I didn’t want to bring that up in the project post since the goal was to share the project and not to advertise.
