I had some 3/4 plywood left over from building my planer cabinet HERE, so I decided to make some more shop furniture with it.

I came up with this cart that holds both my dust extractor and my cyclone separator. The cart is on casters for easy mobility and the cyclone separator is also on its own removable platform with casters in case I need extra reach.

This was a super fun build because I built it straight out of my head instead of using plans or pictures and it allowed me to put some scrap material to very good use in my garage shop with limited space. A nice outcome from a Saturday afternoon putzing around the shop.

Enjoy and I welcome your questions/comments.

Very nice.
I’m interested in doing something like this…. one question: there are four bolt heads visible in the plywood surrounding the cyclone bucket. Do these go through the cyclone’s caster mounts, or did you fab some “L” brackets, or??

The cyclone bucket came with it’s own “X” style caster mount made out of steel. I just put the piece of plywood between that and the bucket.

there is a hole in the bottom of the bucket that attaches it to the plywood and the caster mount. The caster mount isnt really needed at this point, but I didnt know what I was going to do with the spare piece of steel so I just used it as a template to make the holes and then left it on the bottom of the plywood when I put the casters on.
