Tool Cart

I made this tool cart (chest) because I got tired of the tools hanging on the wall getting full of saw dust. But I couldn’t justify the money for a mechanic style one. So I decided that I could make one a whole lot cheaper, and it would be customized to the way I wanted it. The sides are oak plywood. The face frame is solid oak. The drawers and doors are clear pine. And the top is cabinet grade pine plywood. Almost all of materials except drawer guides were left over pieces from other projects. It measures 36” wide 20” deep and about 36” tall with the casters on it. I will probably make a top box for it when I get some more quality left over pieces. Thanks for taking a look.

I like the pull out writing top. It’s great when you can build something from left over stock. Well done.

Amazing what can be done with leftover wood. Really nice job. It takes a lot of thought to design something around the wood you have and make it come out looking like that, but I can see from your previous project that your not new to this game.

Wow! This looks so nice that I would be afraid to use it “for tools”. Much too nice for that! ;-)
