    Nice cart Steve, I like to make shop carts and mobile base units for my power tools as I work out of a single car garage. I have an extra wide driveway that becomes the open portion of my shop. I live in Los Angeles, so the weather is always perfect. I just roll out the tools I’m using and it’s really quite roomy. I always put drawers or shelves in all the base units, it gives me a ton of storage. I think I’ll make your finishing cart.

    I absolutely love being able to work in the driveway too!

    Where did you buy your melamine? I want to make a router table but can’t find any locally.

      You can use MDF. Pretty much same thing. Very smooth. Its what they use for table tennis tops.

    Interesting Steve, the fact that you haven’t painted or finished the painting & finishing cart. You are certainly a paradox.

    Darn. I should’ve seen this project before cutting down and throwing out about a square yard of melamine board yesterday. I hate that stuff (and most other kinds of particle board) but there is no denying its functional utility in this table’s top.

    So on the one hand I keep kicking myself for watching WWMM all the time instead of finishing my own workshop, let alone unpacking my new used tablesaw on the other, I obviously don’t watch it *enough*…
