Low-Cost Utility Cart
This versatile cart combines storage space and a handy worksurface in a compact, roll-around package.
What grabs your attention with this cart is the painted finish. But there’s a lot more going on under the hood, so to speak. For starters, the cart adds a much-needed, mobile worksurface to any shop. On top of that, the on-board storage keeps things close at hand. It features two drawers, an open storage bay with an adjustable shelf, and a closed compartment with two more shelves. Finally, despite the hotrod appearance, this cart has a thrifty heart. The entire case is made from low-cost MDF. All in all, I think you’ll find it’s a project that works as well as it looks.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
