This is made of scrap lumber I had around. Pine and or Hem/Fir. I got a box of hardwood wheels off eBay for next to nothing.
Notice the plan has a detail showing the doors opening. I felt small hinges and short screws would not last long under the normal use applied by 6 and 8 year olds.;-) I took an old pair of Levis and salvaged the denim from a low wear spot on the end of the leg. It is glued, stapled, folded over on itself, glued and stapled again. The doors still worked when Robby took it home!
