    looks great. throw some expanded steel sheet on there for a shelf and a drawer and its good to go.
    a resize on the pic's really helps us dial up guys out.

      Fun - What else you got to do? Been watching the weather up your way and it looks like you've been getting kicked pretty good. Hope all's well with the homestead.

      Today on the weather it said the Rochester area was experiencing substantial snow and 70mph winds. Man that is one cold tropical storm!!!

      Good luck.

      BTW Fabtech - Good looking cart design. Especially like the milk crate.

        nice project

        Good job. Have you found, as I have in my first few projects, that it's hard as heck to keep everything square and straight?

          Once you put the jug on there you'll see why the handle is in the wrong place

          Your feet are going to keep hitting the wheels as you try to wheel it around.

            i found handles in the front seem to work best. pull it into place and you can reach over and pull it a little closer if needed.

            we got a lot of wind but no snow. the wind was bad enough to close school.
            we always have a lot of wind at my house due to location, but the hole area got it this time.

              I had everything cut precise, the bottom frame went together fine, it was the upper rack were I had the problem, some areas got to hot, I only knew of (I think itís called) the pull travel, using 1 x 1 x 0.063 sq. I burned two joins, the gap was too wide. Added a lot of material to fill in the holes. I used a new direction were I push it, so now the puddle does not get to hot Iím right handed so I was welding left to right, I started right to left, worked out OK.

              That wasnít a handle. LOL Thatís were I was going to hang the 25í ext cord from. I didnít think of a handle, thanks, great input :-) I just can't stop laughing about that. Thatís great.
