Block Cart for the Boys & Girls Club Christmas raffle which will be filled with all sorts of goodies…..530mm x 370mm [21” x 14.5”]

The side are made from Cypress Pine flooring which has been glued and doweled.
The base is 12mm [1/2”] ply which is glued and pinned.
The handles are 60×24mm [2.5” x 1”] Tassie Oak glued and screwed along with the 22mm [7/8”] dowel for the handle.
The wheels are Red Gum approx 100mm [4”] dia with 12mm [1/2”] Tassie Oak axles while the plumber blocks are Spotted Gum flooring…
The finish is satin polyurethane clear, 3 coats…

It’s quite sturdy and a little bit heavy but I’m not sure who or where it’ll be going so over engineered it..
My grandsons haven’t be able to destroy one I made similar for home some years back…

Cool little cart for the young ones. My grandson loves to push things around. I think I’‘ll make him one for Xmas.
Thanks for the idea and sharing.

Very well designed and made! Sturdy enough to standup to a lot of hard hauling!

Well done Crowie, the kids will really have fun pulling this around. Something the blokes in the men’s Shed could be making.

At a friends place tonight and checking projects I have missed while I was out of data, all the sites nowadays seems to suck the data up. Great project. Looks to hot there though, Today was frosty, all the trees etc was covered in hoar from and sparkled in the sun. Beautiful.

Thank you ladies and gentlemen for the encouragement and encouragement…

The cart is almost full of Christmas goodies for display this coming week at the community club….

This weekend we took 2 teams to the New South Wales Festival of Gymnastics in Gosford….The display team preformed very well and the 2 “Team Gym” teams got silver medals…..Long weekend but lots of encouragement for the kids….

PS – Apologies for the lack of tread on the wheels, but the kids playing with the cart really won’t mind….
