Stool to Workshop Cart Conversion

I recently replaced an aging desk chair that had several tears in the seat fabric. Since the wheeled pedestal of the chair was still in perfect working condition, I decided to repurpose it and create this mobile workshop cart.

Depending on the style of chair used, construction will vary. I shaped a couple of pieces of plywood to match the chair mounting bracket. A few strips of Masonite around the top perimeter keeps items from rolling off. This roll-around workshop cart is the perfect place for tools, supplies and project components.

SAFETY IN THE WORKSHOP Safety devices, such as riving knives, guards on table saws and guards over router bits have been deliberately left out of the line drawings in Australian Woodsmith projects in order to make them easier to follow. It goes without saying that where safety devices have been supplied by the manufacturers you should use them. We encourage the use of push sticks as good work practice.
    Exercise vigilance and the greatest of care when using power tools, whether stationary or portable. Keep all your tools sharp and well maintained. Wear protective eyewear, a dust mask and a hearing protector when appropriate. By limiting distractions and developing safe work practices you will go a long way to avoiding workshop accidents. So, work safe fellow woodworkers.  -Editor
