Project Information

First of all, everything you've heard about the heat & humidity down in Florida in the summer, is true ! lol
I can't afford air conditioning, so something tells me that this is it for a while out in the shop.
Which by the way, is 110 degrees and 49% humidity right now.

If you look at my workshop page, you'll notice that everything is on wheels. It has to be because of the tight space.
But, it works out well because I can roll out a machine or work table outside the door for better light and a breeze and bring it back in when I'm done.

This mobile stand isn't too fancy but it is super useful.
It doesn't take up hardly any space, and I've designed it to fit a couple of tool chests on a shelf to hold spare parts and accessories.
It's about 24"H x 22"W x 19"d.
Perfect height to use while sitting.
(On days when the leg arthritis is kicking my butt.)

I've made a couple, mostly from scrap pile wood and I think I may make a couple more.
It's an oak frame with pine shelf.

Painted safety blue like my other stuff.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for looking, and try not to sweat on the cast iron !

Not quite that warm here, but the humidity is about a Gazillion percent. Supposed to cool off some this week.

That's looks like a really useful cabinet. Do the casters/wheels lock?

That's Hot.
We finally have +30C here and are enjoying it .
That stand you build is great Eric and it would be nice to have instead of all that stuff getting put on the table saw .
Great idea and stay well and cool .

That's a good looking stand, if you can I'd get a pair of harbor freight magnet bars and put them on the inside portion of the side it will give you some more storage space to hold anything from screw drivers, wrenches or small children if you epoxy a metal plate to their back.

I am looking for mobile solutions to the vacation house shop, but even that cart would be marginally too big. I will build something like that for the miter saw, but higher. But as I write this I am getting an idea for a few fold up carts. The Husky X sawhorses work good as bases for temporary a workbench. I have 3 and I think I will get one more. Fold up carts on wheels will be necessary as well for tools similar to what you have there, including a Rigid sander and a drill press. Oh well, a lot of fun work to be done at both shops.

61 deg and sunny here, still on call, working on the computer…...........

Thanks you guys

Hi lew.
Yep two swivel wheels that lock and two that run straight.

Hi Jeremy.
It's obscene at how much Harbor Freight stuff I have in my workbench drawers. (From that H/F by your house !)
A couple of those magnetic bars on the side is a good idea. Thanks.

And Jim, you are totally right. Fold ups are great. I have three work mates I use, but wanted one that I don't have to set up in order to put a tool on there.
But, with each addition, the floor space gets a little smaller. And that is a trade off.

My daughter who can scroll saw rings around me will make sure the scroll saw is the default tool kept on there…lol

That's cool. I hope you can wheel it under a shade tree!
I used to wheel my lathe out of the east side of the barn at sundown. It was cooler and in the shade until the mosquitoes were so thick they could carry away my turned piece!!.................Jim

This should be very useful in the shop. Looks really solid and sturdy, and should last a long time.
