Cut all the pieces
First cut all the pieces to length as given in the 'cutting list'.
Some pieces need to be angle-cut and shaped. There is a drawing of every piece of wood on the previous page.
The handle shape can be easily marked by using the grid plan (see the previous page).
Step 1. Make up the sides
Nail the front legs [d] and the back legs [c] to the side pieces [a].
The two sides must be made up as a mirror image of each other.
Us the picture as reference.
Step 2. Add the strengtheners
Nail the strengtheners [a2] to the sides [a] and the front and back legs [c, d].
Drill and bolt through the strengthener [a2], side [a] and the front leg [d] on each side.
Use 10mm (3/8") galvanized carriage bolts.
Step 3. Fix the two end pieces
Nail the two end pieces [b, b2] to the sides [a], strengtheners [a2] and the front and back legs [c, d] making a rectangle.
This rectangle serves as the outside frame of the wooden push cart, albeit upside down.
If need be, refer to the plan and parts drawing on page two for part identification (part numbers and letters).
