Here is my shop VAC/dust deputy cart. As in my drill press cabinet,. I used mostly reclaimed and recycled wood. The railing around the bottom edges is just a 2×4 cut in half. The framework around the dust deputy deck is 2×2 redwood that I had laying around. The pieces for the handle are pressure-treated 2×4’s from an old deck project, and the dust deputy deck is made from OSB from my lumber box. The paint is the same as I used on my drill press cabinet.
The dimensions are approximately 18 inches wide by 36 inches long by 24 inches to the top of the handle. The shop VAC sits directly on the framework and not on the wheels. The wheels are still attached, in case I want to take the vac off. Under the dust deputy there is a little storage for some accessories.
If you would like to build your own cart, make the dimensions of your cart so that they are compatible with your vac and dust separator.
I think my next project will be a charging station for all of my cordless tools.
