Finally! It feels so go to be putting up a project. Last summer I tore apart the engine in my truck (I’m definitely NOT a mechanic, so it tool a lot longer than it should have) and this summer I’ve been re-doing my garage so I can work better in it (more efficient and insulation/heating to work during the winter). I’ve had no time to do anything woodworking related.

On days when I could only spend a couple minutes in the shop, I would work on this. Used up some scrap pressure treated ply that was slightly cupped. That’s why the bottom rail in the pics is split. I guess I didn’t have it clamped as well as I thought.

This will be great for when I need to do a brake job or work on the motor of my tablesaw or assemble something on the floor. I’ll be able to put all the tools I need in there as I scoot around. My knees will thank me.

Nice, I like that you have the little compartment too for tools or even a sandwich.

Nice little roll-around! Add some foam insulation to the tool compartment to keep a six-pack cold too!

Good job! I’ve been meaning to build one of these, too, but haven’t got around to it yet. Very soon, though.

I’m not sure I could fit a six pack in that compartment. I’m fairly certain that Woodsmith didn’t take that into consideration when designing it.

However, there is always version 2.0! :D
