Rolling workbench keeps your tools organized and mobile


Above and under the table there is room for five toolboxes. All drawers are labeled. There are shelves at each end for power and pneumatic tools, a small generator, and other larger tools. There is room for a small air compressor.

Above, Donnelly has attached halogen lights to the end of a swing arm. By swinging his arm or changing terrain, he could illuminate his workspace and nearby equipment.

Donnelly wired the table with four sets of outlets. All are powered by a single outlet connected to outlets along the walls. The lights are controlled by a set of toggle switches wired into an electrical box. “I can adapt that to whatever we’re working on,” Donnelly said. “It saves steps. Almost everything I need is here.”

Interesting features:

– Storage shelves at the front and back of the cart give Donnelly enough space to store power tools, a generator, and a small air compressor.

– Donnelly inserted a slightly smaller piece of square steel tubing into the open end of his 2 x 2 inch frame, creating an electrical cord and air hose holder.

– There are five toolboxes on the cart. Each drawer is labeled and many tools are held in place by tool organization products such as Hansen socket trays. Find trays and other organizational products at Hansen Global Inc., Two Rivers, Wisconsin:
