This is a simple cabinet I originally made for holding a small air compressor and miscellaneous tools. Installed wheels on the bottom to roll around as needed. Constructed of plywood with a pine facing. Assembled the doors using kreg jig pocket holes. Added some left over counter top material for the top. I have since found uses for this cabinet inside the house.

Nice work. Looks great. Kreg jigs are really great as well. I have several different ones.

Awesome. Is that the compressor from HF? I kick myself everytime i see how much cheaper it was than my Porter Cable and they appear to be exactly the same…

Nice looking cart. Did you consider putting the compressor in a cabinet to tame the noise? I’ve been thinking about that lately but was concerned that it may overheat or something… Thoughts?

Yep General Pheumatic compressor from HF. Had it for about a year, use it a lot with my brad nailer and has held up well. Having the compressor in the cabinet helped with noise a little, but not much. As long as your compressor is in a cabinet with some room for air circulation you should be fine, I never noticed mine getting warm.

Have your say...
