After completing my tall storage cabinets, I had some leftover scraps. I decided that I could always use a bit more mobile storage and used the leftovers to build this cart. The cart is 21” w x 24” d x 36” h. It is built from 1/2” and 3/4” poplar plywood and some 4/4 pine. The locking wheels are 3” high. The drawers are 5.5”, 6” and 12” deep and use 20” 3/4 extension slides. I plan to use the cart to hold my hollow chisel mortiser and use the drawers for my hollow chisels, jigsaws and circular saws.

nice. I’m going to need a couple of these for a bandsaw and a drill press at some point. Are these your own plans or did you buy them somewhere.

The cart is based on a plan from Wood magazine issue 152, November 2003 page 74-77. You can go to their web site and look at Idea Shop 5 and there is a link to the plan that can be purchased from their store. I adjusted the dimensions to meet my requirements.
