DiResta: Rolling Tool Cabinet

YouTube player


I want the ability to move my storage around to re-arrange my shop and the tools as necessary. So I am revising the the way I store my tools and supplies. I am going modular, and avoiding built-in shelves. I looked around a few stores to purchase “closets,” but I couldn’t find a simple cabinet that was affordable and durable. Solution: Make my own!

Here you see me use about 1 sheet of 3/4 inch plywood, and 2 sheets of 1/2 inch MDF. I had an old set of drawers in the shop collecting dust. I decided to put the draws inside to keep clean mobile. Enjoy !
