Topic tags/keywords: question pine

I would like to get into woodworking. I did some long time ago but nothing major – just small fun projects. I do enjoy the design side of it and wanted some feedback on this cabinet with casters for storing tools, screws, clamps, etc. I have a 2 car garage but I don’t have the room to keep my stuff set up all the time so I thought this could be taken outside to the driveway to do some work. I have not ironed out the details, joinery, drawer slides, etc. I show shelves on both sides currently but they can be a french cleat system for holding tools or cut-outs for tools, such as drills, hand tools, clamps, etc. This is likely too big a project to get me started but thought I would share if anyone would like to build something similar. I have 2D drawings with dimensions if anyone would like them. Thanks for the feedback. BTW, the lower 2 drawers are full length so they can be pulled from either end and the set of drawers on the sides meet in the middle.

Thank you,

That looks pretty neat. One suggestion might be to put a lip on the shelves to help items stay put while rolling around.

I like the idea of the drawers on the ends. One thought would be to make a clamp rack on one side instead of shelves. Having you clamps nearby is pretty handy.

Even though you say it might be too big of a project for you, I suggest you make it. No better way to stretch your skills than to learn by doing and solving design issues as you go. . If nothing else building your own design will help make sure that future designs are buildable.
