I built this shop cart using the plans from ShopNotes magazine issue 90. The plans were pretty easy to follow and I learned a lot building this. The case is plywood with a double layer for the top and bottom. Edging is 1.25” hardwood with 1.5” corners posts. The top is a double layer of MDF which I covered with laminate instead of hardboard as I use this as an assembly table.
There is a lot of storage space in the drawers so I built dividers, sliding trays and totes for most of them so I can pack everything in, this is my only shop storage space.
Loaded up with tools this is a heavy cart, when I built it I hadn’t found a source for good quality castors so it requires a bit of effort to move around but it’s normally parked outside the shop so it’s no big deal. It’s a very solid cart, far more sturdy than my workbench.
