Introduction: Simple Welding Cart

This is a simple welding cart I made to hold my new welder.

This was my first welding project ever. If you're taking the leap into teaching yourself to weld, I recommend making your own cart.

It's a great first-time welding project that provides an opportunity to practice some basic metal cutting and welding techniques. I'm not a novice to making things in general, but a lot of this was brand new territory for me. This instructable covers what I did.

To get started in welding, I strongly recommend audreyobscura's Welding Class right here on Instructables, as well as some of these other great Instructables on the subject.

Step 1: Get Some Metal

I started collecting old metal bed frames a while back, picking them up whenever I'd find them at my local thrift store.

They're a decent source of angle iron for a reasonable price. However, like wooden pallets it's debatable whether or not they're worth the effort to harvest the base material. It's a lot of work, as the iron used for bed frames is extremely hard and somewhat difficult to work, but I enjoy using old stuff like this so I think it's kind of fun.

I recommend slicing off rivet heads using an angle grinder with a thin cut-off disk, and then pounding out the rivets with a large nail punch and a hammer.

I set up some saw horses and various clamping arrangements to help out this process. After a little trial and error, I had figured out a basic system that worked for me.

If you're going to do likewise, be sure to wear all the proper safety equipment for this kind of activity.

Step 2: Marking for Cuts

For my welder and the gas bottle I got to use with it I decided to make a cart that is basically two shelves, both 11" by 28".

I made each shelf using angle iron with mitered corners.

I used a thin cut-off wheel in an angle grinder to make all my cuts. To mark cuts, I used a paint pen with a speed square.

Angle grinders can be dangerous. Follow the safety guidelines that come with your tools.

I recommend using angle grinders with the guard, and simply letting the weight of the tool do the work whether cutting or grinding. They don't respond well to excessive pressure . . much like people!

See photo notes for details.

Step 3: Cutting

To make the cuts, I clamped the metal pieces to my table to hold them securely. The cuts where then made carefully by hand.

I've used metal-cutting chop saws with abrasive disks in the past, and I'm not a fan. In my experience they are good for rough cuts but are not as precise as I want. Handheld grinders do the trick for me and are as precise as I want them to be.

Step 4: Clean Up Cuts

Some fine tuning of the cuts was done using a bench grinder.

The paint on the metal was removed using a wire wheel on the grinder wherever welds would be made.

Step 5: Lay Out and Fine Tune

The pieces for each shelf were laid out and the mitered corners got some additional fine tuning on the bench grinder to make sure they fit well and the whole thing was square.

Step 6: Tack and Weld!

Each corner was tacked together first. (A tack weld is a small welded spot, rather than a full bead.)

Then I flipped it over and did full welds along the joints.

Step 7: Complete Both Shelf Frames

Here's a shot of both shelves completed. I was excited that they were square and not warped!

Step 8: Vertical Frame Pieces

Vertical frame pieces were now measured, marked and cut as before, but with 90 degree cuts.

Step 9: Tack Up Frame

With the help of some magnets to hold things in place temporarily, I tacked the vertical supports to the bottom shelf, and the top shelf to the vertical supports.

This structure was fairly weak at this point with just tack welds, which allows for some gentle bending and tweaking to keep everything square.

Step 10: Add Full Welds to Frame

Full welds were now added to each joint.

Step 11: Oops!

At this point, I decided to grind down my welds to make the whole frame look pretty.


Later on I realized that I had made all these joints incredibly weak.

A couple of them cracked after the frame was painted and the wheels were in place. So later I came back, ground off the paint back down to bare metal, and then re-welded the outsides of the joints and welded the insides as well.

Several photos in the following steps show the frame in this cleanly-ground, pre-fixed state.

Step 12: Axle

For the back wheels, I purchased two no-flat wheels from Harbor Freight, and a 5/8" metal rod to be an axle.

A piece of the rod was cut to the length needed, and holes were drilled on a drill press to hold cotter pins that will hold the wheels in place.

Step 13: Weld Axle to Frame

Because of the size of the back wheels along with the size of the caster wheels I had for the front, I needed to weld the axle onto the frame about 1/4" up on the backside to make the cart be level when completed.

The axle rod was propped to the height needed with a piece of wood, and was welded in place, top and bottom.

These may be messy welds, but I think they'll hold! I had to make several passes to fill in the gaps between the round rod and flat frame.

Step 14: Almost an Oops!

I was just about to weld these zinc-plated washers in place on the axle when I recalled reading about the dangers of welding galvanized or zinc-plated metal. In a nutshell: it's highly toxic and can make you very sick or kill you. So . . you know, heads up on that one!

I ground off the plating where I was going to put a couple of small welds using my bench grinder, holding each washer with a pair of pliers to do so. Then I tacked these washers in place. I should note that I'm working next to a fully-opened garage door with a lot of good ventilation.

Step 15: Handle

The handle was made with 5/8" rod that was left over from the piece used to make the axle.

Pieces were cut as desired, and laid on my table and held as needed with magnets.

Step 16: Weld Handle

The handle pieces were tacked together on one side and then the other, and then fully welded together.

Step 17: Paint Frame

The frame was cleaned and then painted with primer.

After the primer, the frame was painted with a couple of coats of grey spray paint.

Step 18: Fix Those Weak Welds

As noted before, after painting I realized my welded joints were very weak.

I ground off the paint wherever I wanted to add reinforcing welds, and then added all the new welds.

Step 19: Shelf Boards

I made shelf boards out of 3/4" mdf, simply because this is what I had available. I may replace it at some point with something stronger and more longer-lasting, but it works for now.

A hole was cut in the back of the top shelf to hold my gas bottle securely. The shelf boards simply sit in place without any additional fasteners.

With the shelf boards cut and fitting as needed, I touched up the paint over the re-welded areas.

Step 20: Add Wheels

The back wheels were slid into place with some additional washers, and the cotter pins were dropped into the holes in the axle to keep the wheels in place.

The front caster wheels were bolted in place to the front of the frame.

Step 21: Load It Up

The shelf boards were replaced in the frame, and it was loaded up with my welder and gas bottle.

The whole thing rolls into place for storage under my folding work table.

Thanks for taking a look!

Beef Up Your Garage With This DIY Welding Cart

If you have all the welding gear but no cart to stow it on, you’ve come to the right place. Joe Mooney from Homesteadonomics ran into the same problem after he got his new Forney 190 MP welder. Follow these step by step instructions and you can create your very own three shelf welding cart.

Tools and Materials

Project Prep

Always remember to practice safe metalworking habits by wearing the proper personal protective equipment. A fire-resistant welding jacket or apron and sleeves,welding gloves, safety glasses and a welding helmet are vital to protect yourself against dangerous arc flashes and sparks.

Step By Step Assembly

Begin by tacking together the lower shelf. This shelf will eventually hold the wheels and the uprights that will hold the upper two shelves.

tack together the lower shelf

Using tack welds and your magnets, begin forming the skeleton of the cart. Use the magnets to hold up the second and third shelves, and tack them in. 

use tack welds and magnets and begin forming the skeleton of the cart

Create a diagonal support from recessed metal. This diagonal support can serve two main purposes: to give the cart stability and support, and making it look super cool.

*Here Joe used tubing, but you can also use flat scrap pieces or a gusset triangle!

create a diagonal support for the cart

Next, from the same recessed metal create and tack weld cross supports for the shelves. This step is to ensure you can put sheet metal on the shelves.

create tack weld cross supports for the shelves

After you finish the mainframe, you can begin creating a tool box out of galvanized steel for the second shelf of the cart. This box can also act as a drawer.

*It is not generally recommended to weld with galvanized metal due to the toxic fumes it releases. Joe suggests using regular sheet steel and paint it later.

create a tool box out of galvanized steel

Now, grab your expanded metal and begin creating the bottom of drawer/tool box. You will be adding wheels to make it a sliding option.

Now, attach the bigger wheels to the back end of your cart to make it mobile. 

attach the bigger wheels to the back of your cart so it can move with you

Next, add the smaller wheels to the front end of your cart. With two sets of wheels your cart and your machines can travel with ease.

now attach the smaller wheels to the front end of your cart

For your final touch-ups, add sheet metal to the top and bottom shelves of the cart for a more refined look.

If you want to get really fancy, you can add fun and functional features to your cart such as a hook for a welding helmet or clamps, a milk crate for extra storage, or a bottle bracket for your gas tank.

you can add a hook for your welding helmet
its your choice to add functional features
you can add a milk cart to the bottom for extra storage that you can remove
you could add an attachment for your gas tank

Now step back and take a gander at the great addition to your tool bench!

Whether you enjoy making your own projects or you often have people hiring for your talents, it’s always a good idea to have the right equipment in one place. That will not only provide a much more professional vibe, but it will also keep your belongings together, preventing the chance of collecting clutter.

If you’re into welding, you know that having a safe place to gather your materials together is one of the most important parts of staying safe and not creating a mess in the garage with your equipment. In this article, we will introduce you to several different DIY welding cart plans that you can use to make your space even nicer and add more tools to your collection.

These choices have been hand-picked to suit your needs and keep you safe. In addition, many are cost-effective, using only recycled materials to get the job done, and are great ways for you to be able to showcase your talents as a welder to potential customers or practice as a beginner.


13+ Best Welding Cart Plans

1. A Basic Choice

A simple guy (or gal) probably isn’t looking for something too flashy to add to their collection. If that’s you, then this is the perfect option. The materials are readily available, too. You are only going to need in order to make this is wood. Wood will be a great material to use because it’s sturdy and easy to work with. You will simply need to make two identical bases that are 10×19, and then 4 pieces that are 19 inches tall. Put one of the bases on the bottom and the other on the top. On the bottom base, you will take one of these pieces of wood to go across on the right side, two for the left, and one on top of each other. Then, add casters on either side and you’re good to go!


2. Recycled Yet Sturdy

The next option on our list uses recycled materials to create the ideal welding cart. While some might shy away from using recycled materials, it can save you money in the long run and still prove to be a worthwhile choice. In this particular guide, the individual found a discarded paint sprayer and used the bones to create it. One thing to keep in mind is that the instructions for this include electrical components, so if you’re not comfortable with those, then this might not be the best choice for you.


3. Simple and Easy

If you’re just starting out, then it might be a good idea to make your own. This can teach you all the techniques that you will need to know as you set out in this skill. You can also practice some basic metal cutting techniques. All you’re going to need to do is find some metal pieces, make cuts, lay them out in the design you want, and follow the rest of the instructions accordingly.


4. Absolut-ely Useful

Could you have imagined that the next design layout on our list was created using a steel display for Absolut Vodka? This is meant for more light-duty projects, as the author suggested that it was made for carrying half a pallet of vodka. If an Absolut Vodka cart is not something you can find easily, there are easily many substitutes that you can make work. If heavy-duty projects don’t seem to be on your horizon, then it would be worth checking out this DIY project.


5. Upcycled and Functional

Once again, here is another unique option that relies on the use of recycled materials. If you have anything laying around, such as a filing cabinet that was used in this example, that you believe is sturdy enough to handle all of your equipment and some of the projects that you will need to take on, you will have no difficulty creating the ideal cart for all your welding needs.


6. The Very Best DIY

While one might argue about what is considered the best, this author went all-out and decided to create a welding cart that had all the bells and whistles, including sockets and a bottle rack. For this choice, they purchased a steel cart from eBay, which was sturdy but not the greatest for welding. So, this person also created a slat system that was made from a steel box section. Keep in mind that the instructions require the use of electrical equipment, so if you’re not familiar with that yet, it might be a good idea to hold off or have someone else help you.

I love the smell of sooty black iron and it’s almost something I expect in the summer. I have a welding unit, my own anvil, and I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember. I depend on builds like these to transport my unit all around my garage work area. 


7. Cost-Effective Example

Chances are, you’ve been trying to find the right welding cart that will suit all of your needs and store your equipment effectively. But when you checked out the price tag (or the cost of assembling all the materials yourself), that made you question yourself about whether or not welding is truly the right path to take. In this example, we have found a guide that will enable starters to create the right cart for their garage while only costing $15.


8. Your Custom and Unique Example

Who doesn’t like to have a piece of equipment that is both customized and unique? Perhaps you don’t want to have a cart that is run of the mill or that looks like everyone else’s. With this option, it is now possible to have something that is small enough to lug around with you if you use public transportation (or even to fit in the trunk) while also being able to carry all the tools that will be necessary to do the job. To make things even better, this person found most of the materials on the side of the road, so this is also cost-effective.


9. Homemade Custom Cart

What will make you prouder than being able to show off your homemade designs to potential clients to let them know about your professionalism and abilities? If you’re someone who is already comfortable using electrical equipment and doing some of the welding activities on your own, then why not make something customized and unique to suit all of your needs? With this example, the author provides a sample layout to make the process of building the cart even easier. You can choose to copy what this individual did, or you can come up with something that is completely your own! Either way, it’s time to bite the bullet and have a nice place for gathering all your favorite equipment.


10. Make It From Scrap

Have random pieces of another project lying around? Scraps from old purchases that you always promised to get around to, but you simply never have the time to get? What about that old filing cabinet in your garage that seems to just be collecting dust? Well, now is the best time to get all of those out and put them to good use. Not only is this good for the environment, but it’s not going to put a hole in your wallet when you make yourself a welding cart, too. You’re already going to have all the materials necessary, and chances are that they’re going to be sturdy enough for most low-grade projects. For those who want to do more higher-duty projects, there might be a more difficult task on your hands as you go to find the right materials. Here is an example using the wheels from an old bicycle and the pipes of an old broken trolley. In the end, it only took 2 days to build, and the best part is that the original author didn’t have a specific plan in mind when they built it!


11. Old Gas Grill and Scraps

Last but certainly not least, here is another welding cart that will only require the use of scraps or other things you have lying around at home. While welders can be portable, having a cart with wheels will help you to take it wherever you need to, and you can also have all the necessary equipment right in one place. One of the options that can be used to make this is an old shopping cart thanks to the pivoting wheels in the front. However, this particular author decided to use an old gas grill that they had lying around that was already rusted out. It also had pivoting wheels, which would make any welding task that much easier. If you don’t happen to have a rusting gas grill at home, the author said that it’s perfectly possible to find them on the curb or near people’s trash, so it’s not a bad idea to go scavenging and see what materials you can find.


Welding Cart Building Tips

Welding Cart from DIY


Even though welding may seem like a complicated skill to learn, once you master the basics, it becomes easy and fun. Similar to other skills, the more you practice the faster you will learn to weld. And one of the most common first projects for new welders is building a DIY welding cart.

This accessory, which can be used to hold your welder and other tools, takes only a few hours to build. Before we get to the step by step guide, allow us to catch you up to speed with the wedding cart plan you should have in mind. Ideally, the cart will have a lower and upper deck, coat hooks to hang wires and helmets, and a rack on its back for C-clamps. You have the freedom to customize this design whichever way you see fit- there are lots of pdfs online that provide step-by-step instruction, including the links on this page.

My DIY welding cart (still got more to do)!!! from Welding

Let’s get started on how to build a welding cart;

  1. Get your hands on as many pieces of metal as you can. These are the resources you will use to create your cart. If you have none at the moment, you can always visit your nearest thrift store.
  2. Mark the metal for cuts. Depending on your design, start marking all the metals for cuts. An angle grinder can help you with this.
  3. Start making the cuts according to the required measurements. To cut metal accurately, it’s advisable to clamp it and use a handheld grinder for smoother cuts.
    You can then use a wire wheel to fine-tune the cuts.
  4. Layout all pieces of metal and confirm whether they will fit perfectly.
  5. Tack together all corners and weld the metals along their joints.
  6. Compare if all shelves are square and of the same size. One of the key characteristics of a good welder is accuracy. So you need to know your measurements as you carry on welding projects.
  7. Proceed to tacking up and framing the vertical pieces.
  8. Assemble the full-frame and weld along the corners till it becomes sturdy.
  9. Wheel up your cart. In this particular set, we advise you get your hands on some quality pair of wheels. Then connect them with a rod and weld the axle to the frame. But make sure to add a washer to fully hold the axle in place. Also, as you may already know, welding zinc plated metal is a bit dangerous and you should do so in a well-ventilated garage.
  10. Fix a handle. Of course, your cart will need a handle. So cut the pieces and weld it on the upper side frame of the cart.
  11. For aesthetic purposes, paint the frame with your color of choice.
  12. Cut up two shelf boards to fit them in the square shelves.
  13. On the welded axles, add the set of wheels.

And there you have it folks, your welding cart is complete. What’s left is for you to load it up with tools and enjoy easy mobility within your garage or place of operation. Before you can start using it, however, always analyze the strength of the frame. And make corrections on areas that might need improvement over time.

50 DIY Welding Table and Cart Ideas and Designs [ Get Inspired ]

Get inspired with Ideas, Designs and Pictures for building your DIY Welding Table or Cart.  See how others have handled storage for welding machines, rods, gas tanks, angle grinders, chop saw, vises, clamping, and more.  See which work surfaces will work best for you.

Neat pull out support for larger projects. Big vise is essential too. Lots of great fab projects like this on OffroadFabnet.com…

Neat idea for a plasma cutting cart. All the slag and dust funnels down to the bucket. Pirate4x4 is another great source for Fab projects…

Welding cart set up for clamping. Try Garage Journal for this project and more…

Tig Cart from MillerWelds forums is neat. Storage for the Tig, a homemade Tig water cooler, some rod, gas bottle, and the inevitable plastic box full of accessories.

Miller Dynasty Cart. These carts that match the welder’s are sharp…

The pro-welders recommend thick plate on top. This table has 1″ steel plate. See Practical Machinist for more, another great source of ideas.  Love the cutout for the Tig pedal.

Another very stout table, set up for clamping…

Every welder needs a bevy of angle grinders handy. I like hanging them right on the cart…

Lots to like about this Big Red Table. Thick metal top, Big Vise, Clamp Storage, Angle Grinder Storage, and look at those handy outlets for angle grinders and whatever else up under the table lip where they’re protected. There’s even flip up storage for the chop saw. Nice!

Outlets on the cart seem nice. If you’ve got multiple welders on the cart, providing them each with a 220 outlet on the cart that goes to a single connection the wall sounds handy too…

Gas tanks often consume quite a lot of space. This rig lays them in horizontally to recapture some space and keep the center of gravity low. Nice idea, though wrestling them back out of there for refill is probably painful.

Even more welding table and cart ideas:

Nice basic table that includes a well for plasma cutting. Seems to me a pullout or flip-up plasma surface that’s a little larger would be a neat feature for an all-in-one table + cart…

Here’s a nice basic cart for welding…

And another neat little cart…

Got some I-Beams available for salvage? They make for a beefy cart. This one’s from Welding Web…

This might just be a grinder cart as much as it is a welding cart, but it is still neat…

Rod Storage right on the Cart seems like such a good idea…

Another Rod Storage Idea: Just Make a Rack for the Tubes They Come In…

Practically an entire Fab Workshop on a cart. I’m loving the big wheels as I know rolling a heavy cart over the 3/4″ step to my garage would be so much easier with those than regular sized casters…

Tig, Mig, Oxy Acetylene, Nice Tool Chest (looks like a side box, which are handy when you want narrow)–All the Essentials…

Thick cast iron with square holes is the ultimate industrial welding table surface. This type of surface is called an “Acorn Table”…

Neat pull out Plasma Cutting Rack. Note the jacking system so you can pull the casters up off the ground when done rolling the table. Thick steel table is awesome too. This one is from the Hobart Welding Forums…

Hitch Receivers are ideal to mount vises, chop saws, grinders, and anything else you may want to get out of the way if you need more room. Here’s another example of a jack up system to pull a table off the casters…

Be sure to weld a nice grounding point onto your table so you can get the ground clamp out of the way and just leave it hooked up…

Another very nicely done table. Lots of storage + outlets + hitch receivers for accessories…

I recently took one of two car lifts out of my garage to make room for expansion of the machine shop sickness. The good news is that I picked up a large garage stall of floor space, and the bad news was that the lift had been a convenient work surface for many projects including welding. Part of this new push would involved getting things organized and fabricating some custom work surfaces. That meant I needed a convenient place to weld, hence this approach. I’m of the opinion that you can never have too much work surface nor too many drawers, so the idea of building a welding table on top of a rolling tool chest really appealed to me. Here is a brief photo essay of the project:

The idea was to use firebricks to insulate the tool cabinet from heat together with an additional stand-off bracket to increase the air gap…

The stand-offs were made from pieces of 4×4 square tubing that I sectioned on my chop saw…

Brother Dave on the Tig welder. We each did half the welds. Hard to keep in practice for Tig!

Here is the finished table. The square tubing sticking out the front was a last-minute idea. I’m going to mount my vise on there so it is removable as needed. I have a hunch that I’ll come up with other things to insert in that “holster” that will be helpful. We’ll see!
