It has been a long time since I posted anything. In the past 6 months we moved so I have been working on setting up my shop again. In the new place I don’t have as many work tops as before so my workbench has been littered with my tools and boards and chips. I decided to make this because I was working on some mortises and my saws hit the floor. I was so upset with my self so I made this cart to keep my tools handy and my bench clear. Works great and it is very solid. It is made of a bunch of odd pieces I had no use for. Beautiful wood nonetheless. It has cherry and maple, mortise and tenon, the biggest hand dovetails I have cut. I don’t intend to keep it inside but the moisture has shot up here lately and I don’t want to get rust so for the next week it is in my living room.
For the chisels I used an old cutoff with a huge knot hole. After I finished the chisel rack, it reminded me of a greek building because of the dowel construction resembles columns.
I used the retractable casters on it and they work really nice.
