Recently I had to build a new cart for my Drill Press. That left me a cart, and a parts washer homeless. Since I had a need for a cart with supplies in my finishing room, and a place to wash / rinse stuff would be nice I came up with this design. Drawers are 24 inchs deep. Squeezed them for every bit of space I could. The fronts I had originally planned to use transtint red dye, but I found this Snap On emblem in a drawer and decided why not. So I painted them with Rustoleum Safety Red. Handles are a shop design I have used for several projects now.

I never would have known that cab wasnt a snap-on if you hadnta said so. sweet.

In photo #2, what ya done there with those wall cabinet doors? Are those photos of your Family just glued on the doors, or what?

And oh, you got alot of stuff. I hope your wife doesnt mind stuff! My wife hates stuff, always trying to throw away stuff, my stuff, not hers.

Thanks!!

The doors are made like a picture frame. Remove the lexan from the door and you can put new pictures up. Currently that set is of my Grandfather, dad and my son.

Thankfully my wife does not bother with the shops, call them the place where magic happens.

A lot of fine, organized storage there! I could use something just like that, the built in parts cleaner area is the icing on the cake!

I’ll have to live with my old refrigerator for a while longer 8^(
