This is my first rolling cart.

I made this based on plans I found on the internet, to be used as an AC cart.

The legs were first

Next I did the bottom

Then the top

Next attach the legs

And wheels

Roll it where the A/C unit will go – This is where the cart and the AC will be resting with the AC compressor hanging out the window of the door.

I still need to build the riser which I should get to this week.

Once that’s done, I’ll enclose my small shop with plastic and I should have temperature control for the summer.

HOLY MOLY, it’s level LOL

I feel really good about that :)

I screwed up a few things:

The top I mis-measured and need to re-do one day
The under platform of the top I fudged and used 1/2” instead of 3/4”- I had to because I screwed up having HD cross cut the ply in half – and should have been done in 3rds :(
Fortuantely, I had an extra piece pf 3/4 for another project that I had to “borrow”.

And had to use drywall screws in a few places – ran out of wood screws. It figures :(

Here’s the cart with the AC Unit in the door

-- They said I could be anything... So I became Sarcastic! They also said making drawers is easy... I think they lied :(
