my new "custom" (homemade) toolbox cart thing

so i got bored the other day and got to thinking how much i hated my old toolbox cart so i made this. It's just a lawnmower frame with some axles tabbed up underneath, and some brackets made to hold my massively heavy vintage Snap-On box. I took the work bench (if you can call it that) and the boxes off my old cart and mounted them along with an air compressor and not pictured a sound system. It works immensely better than the old one did lol here's a pic or two before i had it 100% finished. I also needed something that i could roll around outside or pull behind a mower or whatever so that's why it has the offload(ish) tires on it.

Where's the engine? You mean you actually PULL that thing around? Next project - adapt an electric scooter motor and controls to it!

Looks good. Here's where I'm at with my garage: When I look at your picture, then think of my garage, I look again at your picture and say: "Mess? I don't see a mess....."

That is the important thing. In playing in the garage and shops for 30 years finding something that works is beyond dandy. The more I look at it the more I like it.
