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.

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!
Once the frame is done you can install the shelves. The top shelf should be flush with the top of the table, and the bottom shelf should be flush with the top edges of the side and trim boards. The easiest way to attach the shelves is with a Kreg Jig, but you could also use small brackets or a piece of 3/4" trim to create a lip for the shelves to sit on (we did this with our coffee table before we owned a Kreg Jig)
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.
