I wish I needed another cart and had the time right now. The only way I might be able to use another cart is for veneer storage; i.e., built like a map cabinet that I could roll under my tablesaw outfeed area. Maybe I'll address that next year.
The carts I built in Florida are shown below, if you need something like those. The sander cart is still the same. I replaced my planer, so there's now a DeWalt on the cart. I'm still using both of those carts. I really liked the cart I built for the contractor saw I had but sold it with the saw when I got my Jet cabinet saw with extension table.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys build.

Live every day like it's your last, but don't forget to stop and smell the roses.
I'm getting ready to build a simple plywood tool cart for collecting many of my frequently used tools on to take them to the work. For anyone looking for a specific style of cart or ideas, the Sketchup warehouse has a nice collection of carts and benches...
I may end up also doing a cart similar to this one, but may do only a couple of larger drawers then use some plastic shoe boxes and such for hardware (latches, catches, hinges, etc...)
I'm kind of liking Alan's idea of making all my cabinets/carts the same height as the table saw and other tools to make it where 1) I'm not running into something when I slide it around, 2) be able to use any of the carts/cabinets as extra surface.

Good idea Darren. I've got a couple of tools that are in inconvenient spots in my shop that I'd like to build a flip top cart for.
Maybe we could have a build contest and the most practical shop cart gets a prize.
Any interest guys and gals ??????

Sounds good. I've got one more flip top on my schedule to make...
