Pancake air compressor cart

My son told me we needed a cart to hold our pancake air compressor and associated tools. He found some examples here on lumberjocks. I wanted to make a fairly simple one. Once I got it built, I decided that it looked too plain and I wanted to jazz it up some. Being a Boise State University football fan, I chose their colors. So I completely disassembled it, primed each piece and painted each piece with Blue or Orange paint. I was kinda hoping that it would look good enough to become one of the pieces of furniture in our home but the wife thought otherwise.

Gabe C. asked for a picture of the bottom of the cart, so I added another picture. To make the axle, I ran the orange piece thru the table saw making a cut just deep enough and just wide enough to run a quarter inch bolt stock in the grove and then covered it with the thin blue piece. Thanks for asking Gabe C.

Women just don’t understand about fine interior decorating. I think it looks fine, and you could use compressed air when it is time to blow dust off the furniture.

What’s the chance you could add a picture of the bottom? I want to see what you did there.

That’s a pretty sweet cart, and it looks very useful. I have the same compressor and haven’t had any issues with it. I’m sure you’ll like it. To be honest I’m not a fan of the paint job. It makes it look like a kids toy. :-)

Hey thanks! I was curious because, well, I will probably end up stealing, er, borrowing the idea. Thanks again.

Ingenious to say the least! Do you keep in the living room as a conversation piece? I can see it all now- visitors ask, “What is that?” Then starts the conversation!
