    I already have a shop cart that I built several months ago. If anybody saw the shop cart the Tommy built on "Ask This Old House" about six months ago, I used it as a general pattern and added a middle shelf to it.

    To build it, I rough sketched it, then used Cutlist+ to design the cutting layout to make it from one sheet of ĺ" ply, with nearly no waste. No pics right now, but I suppose I could take a few.

    It seems to me that the whole premise of "Political Correctness," however well-intentioned it may be, runs the danger of uniform mediocrity becoming the norm.

    Well I have had the material for several weeks now, I will probably build along with a shop cart.

    Sharon, how about doing a Holiday swap? You thought of it, so run with it. I will send you a PM

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Ok i am in i have loads of baltic birch ply i can use for this and i have the wheels.

    I think i am going to adapt mine to a finishing table and use it for the grinder and granite slab .

    I like that i dea of the roll holder. Gotta add that to my workbench.

    Anyone got plans i have not got shop notes due to my personal avoidance of more magazines. Or do we wing it from the picture.

    Are there going to be any rules. Lets remember we aint a HA.

    Well, it seems like everyone who wants in wants a shop cart?

    Guess we need to move on up to step 2 and finding someone to lead this.

    Any volunteers to be the project lead?

    What if we search the interwebs for a free plan? Everyone could base off of that. It would also eliminate the need for a project leader for the first one? As most plans have all the directions and jigs, built in.

    Not a bad idea.

    I might make two. One for sharpening and the other for the mitre saw the ambassador convinced me to keep.

    Steve did you not make a mitre saw rolling cart with fold down wings? Or have i got the wrong person.
