This upright’s of this cart were made from bed frame angle iron that was being thrown out, it is very strong. The bottom “Bucket Part” was made from an army surplus metal bin purchased at National Ace Hardware for about $5. Castors were added to this. The table top is threaded rod laminated 2x4’s with inlaid cedar chess board. A little too nice for a shop utility cart but that’s ok. I made it level with my workbench so that I could balance longer “works” between the two of them. The bottom of the drawer was made from sheet metal cut from the side of our discarded and dismantled stove. This cart is very sturdy and a nice addition to my work shop.
