I wish I would have gotten that three shelf cart.
The work surface may be a good idea, all of us are different. I myself find it VERY hard to keep the bench clear of little parts and stuff that I THINK I am going to be using right away. If the cart had a top on it that couldn't be left full of stuff because you have to go inside to get stuff on a regular basis......it would HAVE TO stay clear and could actually be used as a work surface...hmmmmm sounds like a winner to me.
The only problem would be what do you put inside, only tools that you aren't using a whole lot just so you don't end up needing what is inside to work on what is on top the bench.
I want the MOST USED tools on top, so I would have a hard time with that, but it looks like a good plan if you can pull it off.
