This cart carries my air compressor around so I don’t have to. It is oak reclaimed from pallets from a steel service center with pocket screw joinery. The finish is BLO. the leverage is such that it is pretty easy to tilt it up and wheel it over thresholds, hoses, cords or even the odd scrap of wood that might have somehow ended up on the floor. Certainly not the prettiest project ever posted, but it saves a back every time I need the compressor somewhere other than where it is.

Well done Ham! It’s nice to be able to get some shop time in isn’t it?

-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.

Great idea! I hate moving my pancake compressor around…now maybe I’ll be inspired to do something about it, and have a nice way to store the hose. Thanks for posting.
