In my shop there is an area between my workbench and a storage cabinet where one of my shop carts usually end up. It provides an extra space to stack stuff instead of piling it on top of the workbench.
Last month I built a new tool box for the shop (link), and enjoyed the project so much that it got me to taking a hard look at the shop carts. Time to replace the purchased cart next to the workbench with a shop-built one that would make more efficient use of the space, and provide more storage space. It was a fun two-day project that used up a lot of scraps from the wood rack. Simple wooden slides work well for drawers as long as you do not plan on filling them up with very heavy things.

I'm beginning to trip over my scrap box and need to do something... you got me thinking hard now. That is a wonderful addition to your beautiful workshop I'm sure you're proud of it.

Very nice cart and great way to work. I have one I built that resembles your store bought. I load it with the tools I need for the task at hand and roll it up to the project rather than making trips to and fro.

I didn't need the extra drawers but would welcome them just the same.

Friends don't let friends use stamped metal tools sold at clothing stores.
