Imagine having tools that could go wherever they’re needed. What a great idea! That’s the thought behind this week’s project, a roll-around tool cart.
Never again will you be caught with your drill without the bits, or your saw without an extra blade. And all we’ve done is combine one big box with lots of smaller boxes. That's all there is to this roll-around cart. Yet, as simple as it is, it's a great way to store power tools and accessories.
The roll-around tool box has a number of shallow, pull-out trays (you decide how many) to help organize your power tools and accessories. The tray height is adjustable, so you can arrange the trays to fit your own tools. And it's really convenient. Just slide out a tray and grab a tool, or take the whole tray with you. Or roll the whole cart up to your workbench or out onto the driveway.
As an added bonus, this cart is strong enough to use as a bench-top tool stand for your thickness planer or jointer or drill press. To save space, we’ve even designed this roll-around cart to tuck into the unused space under the wing of your table saw.
BONUS PLANS: Combine the tool cart with a master workbench and router table, and you’ll be as organized and efficient as all those carpenters you see on television.
As with our plans for the router table and workbench, the plans for the Tool Cart come with a materials list, cutting schedule, plenty of illustrations, and step-by-step instructions to guide you from beginning to end.
