Rolling Pegboard Cart


My cart was inspired by this guy:
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/31964

and I posted project there as well, but thought some of you might like it too. If you have same issue as I do - basically working from garage and sometimes from driveway - you're maybe tired of running back and forth for tools and might find this useful.

Here's my version, but I'll post pics and details here as well:
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/103773









This is my version of rolling pegboard cabinet that I was inspired to build from:

Mark Whitsittís project:
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/31964

Thereís a $15 wood dolly as the base.
The framework is put together mostly with pocket hole screws / Kreg jig, except for the shelves, which were attached with a nail gun.
For the drawer, it was the first time I tried using my Jessum doweling jig, which works fine. You just have to measure carefully; of course I guess thatís for anything. I really hadnít built drawers before so I did screw up the sides. My solution was just to mount the sliders on the bottom. (Ideally this is one of those, ďOK, that was a recoverable learning experience Iíd prefer not to repeat.)
I did add a small bracket on the back near the top to hold some 6í pipe clamps. And the rear part of the lower shelves are cut a few inches deeper than the front side, which are flush. This was to accommodate storing the clamps by just clamping them to the top of the case or the bracket.
The pegboard itself is attached via the nail gun, and is the actual side, thereís no underlying plywood. Where the 2◊2 side rails exist, I just canít use pegs is all. No big deal.
Thatís about it! No more running back and forth for every tool and cleanup every time I head to the driveway to build something. Just roll all the gear out!

Thanks to Mark for the idea.

Cool project. I like the idea of hanging the clamps on the back.

I can picture a shorter version starting with an old base cabinet from a Habitat Re-store......

Nah, I got too many projects on my list already.

I like the idea.

I was thinking along those lines and decided if I build one the heavier items would go toward the bottom. I suppose a person could always design some outriggers for it.

I semi screwed up with the 6' pipe clamps on back. I didn't account for the vertical space needed for the handles / cranks on top which I'd intended to hang off top shelf. Luckily, I had enough room to put another cross member in and still have enough space below that they don't scrape the ground. Barely.

I don't think it would go over a significant bump very well.

But it's not a problem to either push or pull it from the vertical middle area. Especially with the heavier saws / drills, etc. stored towards bottom, it's reasonably stable. I'm sure I could destroy some gear with a very loud crashing sound if I shoved it hard from the top. So... I just don't do that.

It has drastically decreased my build-in-the-driveway setup and clean up time. Someone on Lumberjocks asked about dimensions.

It's basically 6’ x 18” x 30” with width/depth pretty much determined by the size of the $20 dolly I got at HD. It's supposedly good for 1,000 lbs, which is more than enough so ideally that will hold up. Of course, you could always use heavier duty 2x4s and your own wheels for the dolly.
