Finally finished the Flip Top Tool Cart featured in the “The Complete Small Shop” book that comes with the Shop Notes magazine subscription. Took me a month of part time work here and there, very part time. I use a sheet of Maple plywood I got at Home Depot, cost $40 for the sheet. Some Poplar, I had, for the spacers in the top. Probably another $40 in hardware, including the casters. I have two coats of glossy poly on it.
I am overall, very happy with the cart. I made some mistakes, but it works and looks decent enough. I am fairly new to woodworking and almost every project I do has some learning curve to it. This project, as well as, each one I do will help me get better for the next. I will use the cart for my planer and spindle sander, as seen in the images.
Thanks for looking.
I am also looking forward to posting the jewelry box project I made before this one, but it still needs a finish. Stay tuned.
