This is a hardware storage cart I built. It holds seven Stanley Professional Organizers, four regular ones and three deep ones. It was designed to fit below my drill press table. It is made from 3/4 birch plywood and poplar. The brackets for the organizers are made from 3/4” aluminum angle. The casters were mounted outboard to fit over the drill press base. Filled with hardware this weighs over 100 pounds. This is a quick and easy weekend projects. I had most of the organizers before I built this project.

Nice! The only drawback I see is that you have to bend down anytime you want to remove an organizer and access the hardware. Guess as you get old you start thinking of those things.

Looks good! I’ve been thinking about one of these. I might make one a little larger and incorporate some drawers for boxes of hardware.

Yours turned out much better than mine. I slide my cases in dados which were cut to the size of the lid/lip of the case, plus no wheels on mine as I made it to go on a shelving unit.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice Project! wish i had that much hardware that would require a storage unit like that! I do like the Stanley organizers, fairly inexpensive and holds things securely. I have one of the big ones and thinking it is about time to get another one.

Again, nice project and very practical
