I made this cart for my HVLP sprayer so I could get it out of the storage bins.

Top drawer holds the spray gun and all accessories
Middle drawer holds the filters and bigger things (even a one gallon can of finish)
Bottom drawer holds the hose

Two features that I think are handy.

1) The remote controlled on/off switch for the sprayer
2) The extendable sprayer arm for holding the spray gun

—-Melamine (¾”), edge banded with maple glue on edge banding. (I was going to stain the edge banding the same color as the melamine, but I kind of like the two-tone effect, so I think I’m going to leave it for now.)
—-Pocket hole joinery
—-Recycled drawer glides
—-Recycled drawer knobs
—-Recycled locking casters
—-Recycled ¾” conduit and ⁵⁄₈” wood dowel that slides inside.
—-metal hook that I thought I’d never use.

Pretty darn nice man.
Recycling those parts saves a lot and that’s nice too.
Leave the edge band that color, it does add a nice contrast.
I bet you get a ton of use from that cart.

great build

having like minded things all together in one place
really makes for better working
and a roll around is even better

Looks great!
I made a small rolling platform for my fuji mini-mite 4.
I like the gun holder and remote switch.

WHat do you think of the rustoleum poly?

Geez! That’s fabulous. I just sprayed a project this afternoon. I am glad Jeff Foxworthy wasn’t around. I can just hear it, “You must be a redneck if you spray a project balanced on an old paint bucket.”

I liked the Stand and the best part ever thing is all together. No more looking in two or three places for your equipment. The hook to hang the spray gun is great.
My equipment is on order and had not figured out what to do with it, this is a great way to keep my equipment safe and together and if I am out side it will move easy.
I have a some of questions if you don’t mind.
1) What size casters did you use?
2) What kind of remote did you use and where did you get it? Was the unit inside the bottom left back corner?
3) Did you put somekind or rack on the back for the electric cord?
Thank You

Nite walker – I’ve had very good success with the water-based Rustoleum Poly. Just know that the first coat acts as a sanding sealer and MUST be sanded (220-240 grit is fine). Then the additional coats (I recommend at least two more for a total of three) will apply smoothly.

1) 3” locking casters
2) The remote that I used is a 110v Dust collector remote switch switch. The particular one I used dosen’t seem to be made anymore. These can be purchased from just about any woodworking store. They are, however, pretty expensive. A quick search on resulted in several less expensive remote options that would work just fine. Click Here and Yes, the remote receiving unit is mounted in the bottom/back of the cart behind the sprayer.
3) For the cord, I just drilled a hole in the back of the cabinet that was big enough to pull the cord through. No hangar on the back I just let the plug end hang out the hole then when i want to use it, I can just pull out the cord. when I’m done I can just feed the cord back through the hole and let the plug end hang out the hole.
4) The Cabinet dimensions are 24”wide x 24”deep x 32”high. (with the added height of the casters it makes the total height about 36”)

Hope this helps.

Very nice cart!

The turbine doesn’t get hot without any rear venting? I have a 4 stage Fuji myself, and it can get pretty warm, even in open air, during some sessions.

The turbine does get warm, but I don’t feel like it’s getting overly hot.
There is quite a bit of room all around the unit so airflow seems adequate.
If at some point I feel like I need to add some vent holes, it would be easy enough to do.
