Project Information

The BBQ wore out and there was no point in fixing it but I just had to save the cabinet which was perfect for a mobile shop cart.
The bench that my drill press is on was getting crowded since I installed the drill press table with the sanders having to share the bench top so I thought a mobile cart would be the answer .
This is the setup ,disc sander, oscillating sander and bench grinder on top of a salvaged top from a computer desk .
The setup has dust collection and a power bar mounted under the top with a plan for a shroud and tool rest for sharpening for the bench grinder to come .
Plenty of storage space behind the doors and shelf under the top and corner bumpers on the top corners and the lockable casters as a bonus .
The cost was almost zero as all the components are either recycled or reused from a previous installation .
I like it already and the shop improvements are coming along bit by bit .

Great re use of that frame, Klaus. I have my spindle sander cantilevered off the back of my scroll saw so they share the same floor frame!

That is s slick set up- everything has max clearance when in use!! I love it…......................Jim

Great setup. Glad you came up with this and shared. Just think how many of these will not end up in the trash now because of your thinking!

How about if you add a little mini grill on one side, and you could do a burger while you are sanding or grinding….... just kidding Klaus …..nice repurposing project.

Great use of your old barbecue cart. Does it smell like barbecue when you sand anything?

I have a propane barbecue pit that is sitting under my patio that never gets used anymore since I got so spoiled using a charcoal kettle pit instead. Now I see a new life for the propane grill…hated to throw it away…
