So I came across this thing on Craigslist and trying to figure out if I could use it for something. I like that its rugged and narrow and perhaps there would be some use as a rolling cabinet, just not sure what I could reasonable put in it. Appreciate any ideas folks have.

That is a nice score! Boeing sells them for $1600 and up. http://www.boeingstore.com/Boeing-Galley-Beverage-Cart/dp/B00OAB0BTA?field_availability=-1&field_browse=10809202011&id=Boeing+Galley+Beverage+Cart&ie=UTF8&refinementHistory=subjectbin%2Cprice%2Csize_name&searchBinNameList=subjectbin%2Cprice%2Csize_name&searchNodeID=10809202011&searchPage=2&searchRank=salesrank&searchSize=12

perhaps a router or drill bit storage with slide-out trays? Maybe sandpaper storage?

It doesn't have to be used in the displayed position.

Turn it on its "back" to hold long clamps.

Put "shelves" in it to store short offcuts.

Wow. Wish I'd found that! What a neat find!

If it were mine, I'd put some pull out shelves in it and make it a mobile tool chest for tools I use the most or use at the assembly table, to save me some steps. I'd have a block plane, a flush cut saw, a mallet, a couple paring chisels, my glue, small wedges, most-used screws, my corded drill and a few bits, a countersink - that sort of stuff. I might even screw a board to the top that overhangs 2" on each side and hang a few clamps from it (if that doesn't make it top heavy).

Let us know what you decide to do.

That's something you don't see in the wild very often!
You could make slide out tray shelves for screw hardware. It would hold a lot of hardware.

Malcolm, that's an interesting website.
