I made a mobile bandsaw cart that also has a ton of other power tool storage to go along with it. It is a simple cabinet on casters that allows me to move it all around my shop space. I love my new Rikon bandsaw that I will permanently mount to the top. It has been a great addition to my shop. For the size and price I think it is hard to beat. The cabinet is made out of all 3/4 inch plywood. The drawers are 1/2 inch plywood.

The cabinet stores my jig saw, palm router, multi tool, dremel, circular saw, and reciprocating saw. It is really nice to have all of those in one place!

Nice work, always good to have stuff organized and where you need it.

My only suggestion. Give it a colored finish. Stain or paint or something. Reason? memory retention for one. Colors do amazing things for our memory. #2 It gives it a finished look pro quality. #3 This is also a good time to practice something new finish wise.

I would post a pic but don’t want to take away from your project. You can look at my past projects to see what I am speaking of.

I am wanting to practice something different on the finish. It has just been so cold here I am afraid that it may be a struggle to dry properly. Once it is a little warmer out I will get some finish on it.

Always tough when the shop is not heated. I use one of these for my 24×16 shop, works well. Got it at Northern for $80. 220 volt 30 amp heater.
