This rolling cart is easy to build and super versatile! It's great as a nightstand, but would also work for an end table or even a printer cart in your home office. Plus you could size it up for a simple rolling coffee table. Add a big basket underneath for more storage.

Preparation

Shopping List

2 - 2x2 @ 8' 3/4" plywood 4 casters wood filler wood glue 1 1/4" screws 2" screws Kreg Jig with 1 1/4" and 2 1/2" pocket screws (optional) finishing nails (optional)

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Finishing Instructions
Preparation Instructions
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth.

It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
