Hi Guys,

I am in the designing phase of building a workshop cart on wheels that I can store my benchtop drill press, band sad and if possible store my spindle sander and air compressor ..

Any ideas!! I think I have just enough room for 36-40” width

I just built this miter station recently. Right now I store my shopvac under it on one side and on the other I have a rolling microwave cart that fits perfectly under it as well as my little bucket vac that hooks up to my Kreg jig and biscuit jointer. That cart hold my sanders, my dremel and my corded circular saw. My air compressor sits under the miter saw as well as a few other things I rarely use. This is not complete though. I used plans from Ana White to build this. And I intend to add the two carts from the plan that will tuck under each wing. I also would like to enclose the air compressor.

This guy is massive. It’s huge. Although it’s a bit high.. I chose not to alter the height and it’s working perfectly for me. I do plan on altering the two carts from their design but mostly they will follow the same concept.

Yeah I didn’t know of one with the combination you want so I posted the closest thing thinking you might get some ideas. Are you wanting something like a double flip cart? A cart that stores machines is not much to go on.

This issue of Woodsmith has a concept that might be closer. I like their idea, but their box/drawers are a little to complicated for my taste.

They totally mimicking sustainers … I’m just going to have to hit Sketchup and get the restive juices flowing… I need a work surface as well as storage .. I think a box with internal shelf system probably on pin hole supports …

I’ll post the project after completion

I built these for my trailer. I can roll them in and out easily….One holds welder, air compressor.
Other one has vacuum, two routers in table top , third one is drawers for hand tools. These are the sketch designs, my pictures of them are gone !....One day will have to take more pics.

I start my carts looking like this.

It became a lumber cart.

I could put a top on to be a work table, or mount power tools, or put shelves in it. The framework is glued and screwed together, but a top or shelves would be screwed only. Remove the screws when you need it to be something else.

It’s basically tongue and groove, I use a dado blade on the TS.
