Rolling tool chest
Could not figure where to post this, but I am planning and designing!
I am in need of a tool chest, The cheap ones are junk and I cannot justify the expense of a quality one.
Had an idea and need some feedback.
I am looking at a Hon lateral file cabinet 4 drawer. The dimensions are approx 36" w x 19" d x 53" h. My idea is to remove the top 2 drawers . Install 6 to 8 full extesion ball bearing slides and make 6 to eight wooden drawers with 3/8" plywood bottoms and some casters and presto changeo, rolling tool chest for little money.
This would give me 6-8 drawers, for tools, I have not figured how many drawers would be optimal yet. and 2 large drawers for ------ well big stuff.
I do wonder if it might be top heavy and unstable?
Any thoughts, ideas, input or wisecracks greatly appreciated. JIm
