Well, I decided to stop fighting with the sander and chopsaw for space on the counter top once and for all! So I spent the night making this one up to have the sander out of the way. Now I can move it when I need to use it with the handle in front. The back I put dowels in to hold the plug and they can also be used to move it around the shop. I put a shelf on the bottom and middle to hold sanding things and this will help keep things together too. I didn’t have plans I just went for it! Started when I seen some wheels in the garage! Darryl was a bit impressed I think but thought I was nuts for staying up all night to do it. I just might have to make 2 more and get that counter cleaned off for good. I really like how it turned out not bad using just a chop saw huh? *BG

Good looking stand. I don’t use mine all that often. It’s nice to get it out of the way.

I really like the idea of putting the tools on their own cart. I’ve done that to most of my tools now. (Still in the working). Putting each one on rollers makes it so much nicer than dragging it around. or being limited to moving it. The only two tables in my shop that arn’t on rollers is my two work benches.
Let me know how it does when it comes to using it. If it moves about, and how you stopped this from happening. I have some problems with this with mine.

Good idea and smart of you to make a place to store the power cord.

Thanks for the comments! JJohn, you can get lock down wheels so it won’t move on you or if you don’t want to replace them push the cart up to something you can clamp it to while you work. Nothing worse and dangerous chasing a tool around. Sure is nice to get it off the countertop! Thanks again!

This is a nice tool stand. I can well understand your excitement that enabled you to pull an all nighter. When you get on a roll it is hard to break away.

Well done!! And thanks for the post.
