This is a simple drill press mobile cart I came up with. The cart includes a drawer for bits and accessories. I also included shelves for other tools. The shelves include cut outs for a better fit.

Neat idea. That serves two purposes. One suggestion might be to put some clear doors on the front to keep the falling chips out. They bounce all over the place and may fill up you storage areas….......Jim

Nice cart. I noticed you have a mouse sander in there stored face down. I’ve heard that because these are hook and loop sanders that storing them that way can, over time, flatten out the hooks and loops so they don’t work so well any more. I heard not to store them face down.

Great looking cart. I see you used pegboard for the drawer bottom, was that planned? I do the same for most of my shop cabinets to let the dust fall through other wise I end up with a ton of dust in the drawers.

Jim – I like your idea about the doors. Should be pretty simple to put some plexiglass in there plus I made the middle divider laid in a little deep.
Don – thank you for the tip. I hadn’t thought of that but it makes sense. Funny enough my mouse sander was probably my cheapest tool purchase but I always end up using it over my other sanders.
Martin – It was somewhat accidental because I had some pegboard in my shop that I was planning on using for a down draft sanding table but figured it would help prevent dust and wood shaving from collecting. Still trying to come up with a better idea for the dust collection. Not sure if my hose set up is going to do it.

Steve187….......stop it with ‘way back in the late 60’s/early 70’s’ you are bringing back too many old salt memories. Operation Deepfreeze 1968 & 1969
GeekyDad79…your projects are great. I just retired Friday. After our move, if you don’t mind, I would like to use some of your ideas in my new shop to be. Keep up with the great work.
