Hide-away cart for vacation planning
This cart was made out of on-hand materials other than the casters. The Pine (?) was from a cupboard that we tore out after moving in - I even left the screw holes intact. Purpose of cart is to temporarily store binders books, maps etc for planning vacations. In this manner we can quickly "clear the decks" and also move the planning stash from kitchen's dining area to living room, or store the stash/cart under the office desk (hence the hide-away function). Its joined only with pocket screws.This is only my second-ever project with pocket screws. One screw decided to project a bit thru a rounded edge - that screw-tip got filed down.
So now I can plan our next desert vacation in NV-UT-AZ, no more excuses.
Despite multiple measurings of the desk, I made it a teeny bit too tall, so it has to hide under the right side of the desk, not the left side - dues to metal plate and projecting screw head issues. If it bothered me, I can disassemble the cart, shorten the sides, and reassemble it.
