But there's one real problem that I can see, and that is everything is designed to be glued together. I used Titebond Ultimate instead of Gorilla Glue, because that's what I had and it works fine, but the problem is the same -- if pieces do eventually break, how are you going to repair them? I spent a bunch of time thinking about building without glue, or minimal glue, but, in the end, opted to use glue and screws as instructed, as it is really necessary for plywood. I do think a very similar cart could have been built with only screws and other fasteners, but it would like be more complex and time consuming. Maybe each of the four large panels (bottom, 2 sides, front) could be a hardwood frame with plywood panel? Anyway, I did enjoy building this, and it is really practical.
By building it myself, I get a very good cart and the instructions in this book make it a lot less $$!
Easy to follow instructions and drawings, Even I was able to put this together and use materials I already had on hand!
