Mobile Table Cabinet Blackfoot ID

To keep the doors closed I used a sliding bolt, but a screw eye and hook is equally simple and effective.I attached the cabinet to a dolly with four conduit straps. All the materials, including the dolly, were purchased at a home center for about $40.

Mobile Table Cabinet

Mobile Table Cabinet

I bought my current house because of the big detached garage, which is perfect for my woodshop. However, when I started remodeling the house I got really tired of lugging boxes of tools from the garage to the house every weekend. To make things easier on my back, I made this mobile tool cabinet. It holds a variety of essential tools, which are easy to swap out for different tools when your needs change. I built this cabinet using 1x10 pine boards which are lightweight yet rugged. I fastened the cabinet sides to the top, bottom and shelves with biscuits, screws and glue. Then I glued and screwed the boards for the back. I added the pegboard inside to hang a variety of tools. 

I surface-mounted the leaf hinges to the outside of the cabinet. This approach allows the doors to stop in an “open book” position. This makes accessing the tools on the doors much more convenient than if the doors swung all the way around to the sides of the cabinet. 

I also added a small block of wood underneath the front edge of the cabinet so it tips backward slightly which helps keep the doors open when in use. To keep the doors closed I used a sliding bolt, but a screw eye and hook is equally simple and effective.I attached the cabinet to a dolly with four conduit straps. All the materials, including the dolly, were purchased at a home center for about $40.
