This week I’ve made a start on the cart. Likely it will turn out to look nothing like the SketchUp drawing I made last week. The idea is to make a shop cart to hold my air compressor and nail guns plus serve as an extra assembly table or out feed table for my table saw.
The other feature of this project is that I am making it out of recycled wood. During last year’s remodel we took out some old bookcases and I returned them to kit form (took them apart). The usable wood I saved. Here is part of what I have:
After cutting them down I now have the base (the wheels are from an old shop cart I tore apart last year):
and one side:
It’s going to be an ugly thing when it’s done, but I’ll be able to excuse any defect on the fact I built it out of recycled materials. You can do a lot of bad work as long as it’s recycled.
If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,
