Nice way to group your bench top tools in a limited space.
And the mobility makes them easier to move around.
Smart idea.

Wow, great idea. I am a big fan of adding wheels to stuff. And you got some gorgeous color out of that wood. Nice job!

Nice way to save room and gain some efficiency. Nice going.
