I built this rolling cart for my mechanic’s box. The sides and back are left over metal siding from my shop. drawer fronts are oak, the drawers are pine. The drawer pulls are spalted elm (left over scraps from my bench). The drawer slides are maple. I managed to pick up casters from a flee market.

That’s great Don, beautiful shop cart. A lot nicer to look at than a bright red SnapOn or Mac Box.
