Hi. I was tired of hunting for specific tools and fasteners that I needed to complete certain jobs. I wanted to build a work cart that could carry the bulk of my Ryobi tools but that could also be reconfigured as the need arose. The french cleat system seemed to be the way to go due to its ease and strength. The cart turned out better than I had expected and is still a work in progress. I just figured out what worked for me in terms of battery storage which was something that stumped me for days. There are lots of great ideas on the web but nothing that really worked out for me. Anyway, take a look at the pictures and see what you think. I am always open to suggestions. I learned a fair amount doing this project and am always looking for new ideas.
