Ron: nice cart!
Obviously a bunch of custom work there, but how about the basic rolling cart. Did you start with a store bought or a home built design?

I have to say it is pleasing to see so many tool chests that don't go much higher than waist level. One thing I notice about seasoned career A&Ps is they always have low tool boxes. They not only make great work surfaces but more importantly can be moved around aircraft more easily since they dont tend to catch wings or lift struts. Or if stationary a moved airplane is less likely to incur damage from a poorly placed tool box.

Rules of thumb:

Always low tool boxes
Make sure 80 percent of sockets and ratchets are 1/4 drive for aircraft work
Snap-On does make a difference to the apprentice and journeyman alike
If modifying a tool use something like a Craftsman or Stanley as the donor
No hack saws or electric tape, unless hidden from the Gomers

It's a stainless steel cart that my wife salvaged from a discard at a medical office. One of the red carts from Harbor Freight would work.

Default Quick and Dirty

And they don't take any additional floor space.

The tables are easy to build. Once they were done, the drawers weren't hard, either. All the shop tables except one have them. Here are the table instructions.
