The design for this mobile stand-up desk was inspired by Paul Akers of FastCap and the mobile stand-up desk he created for his own use; and now offered to the public as "Paul's Desk" on the FastCap web site. Unlike Paul's Desk, the one I created is primarily constructed with 3/4" cabinet grade plywood.
Drawers were designed to fit under the desktop, and they are on my drawings, but I have not built them yet. The space occupied by the drawers can be left open as shown in this video with coat hooks installed, or a trash bucket placed in this space. Other options would be shelves, or a combination of drawers and shelves.
Another option is to build this unit as a mobile tool cart. Your options are almost limitless, as you can add drawers or shelves, cabinet doors, all kinds of hooks and holders, etc.
The drawback to this desk is that it is custom built to the correct height for the individual using it and is not adjustable. The other drawback is that it will cost more in materials than simply ordering Paul's Desk from FastCap. However, if built as a tool cart, the height is not critical, and the expense may be well worth it.
It is fairly quick and easy to build though, and if you already have materials in your shop, then it's cheap to build and own, regardless of it's intended purpose.
