I made this yesterday out of necessity. I was having to drag this big barrel around to clean up the chips from the wood lathe. Then when it is full, I truck it on a dolly to the fire pit and burn them up.
So I had this piece of very good maple plywood but it was scrap with holes in it so I half lap joined two pieces to make it 24” in diameter and laid out the pattern for the mounting holes, the casters and the flat that goes against the dolly to stabilize it when I truck it to the back yard through the grass.
I put in on the chip barrel today and now I can truck it without the tendency to roll off the dolly and I can roll it around in the barn easily. The board was free and the four casters were a buck! No finish on this one!!
