"A" Frame Tool Holder On Wheels
"I got tired of always cleaning off a cluttered workbench," says John Gruman, who created a tool holder on wheels he calls the "A-Frame Tool Tote."
  The wooden tool carrier is 6 ft. long, 20 in. wide at the base and 6 in. wide at the top. It rides on heavy-duty caster wheels and has a handlebar at each end.
  "The number of tools it'll hold is up to you," Gruman says, adding that he hangs the tools using screw hooks and finishing nails.
  Six hammers, mallets and other tools fit into the holes along the top. "When loaded with tools, this thing can weigh between 350 and 400 lbs.," he says.
  Gruman says the four drawers on each end of his tool holder are 24 in. deep. "The drawers could go clear to the center, though," he notes.
  Instead of using rollers, he has the drawers slide on pieces of angle iron. "This works better on rough floors," he says.
  Gruman says his favorite thing about the tool holder is that it's a time saver. "I can use a wrench, turn around and hang it up. I don't lay it on the machine or under the hood or anywhere else," he says. "It goes right back on the peg. It's a discipline thing and therefore I always know where it's at."
  The A-Frame tool carrier has been so popular with friends and family that Gruman has put together plans for sale.
