    My own take on the wood cart.

    39$ Dolly from Canadian Tire.
    2 - (2x3) Top Bottom Plate
    2 - Strapping 8ft
    2.5" screws and 1 1/4" screws.

    Cut 2x3 into 4 - 18" and 5 - 10.5"
    Assemble top and bottom.
    Bottom outter's are inset 1.5" and an extra middle piece. 2.5" screws
    Top is simple square frame.
    Cut strapping to 4 - 4' pieces. (you will need an extra 18" piece of strapping)
    Inset the strapping that will sit inside the dolly's frame rail. attach with 1.25" screws to boxes.
    Front are a bit farther apart.
    Then take the 18" strapping and sandwich the frame rail to the upper box. 2.5" screws.

    You are welcome internet. :D

    You could take your time and if you have the room, encase in pallet wood and stain.

    It's funny. At first I was all about appearance. Wood in a copper tub. Cutesy. Now it's all about the least amount of effort and the most amount of wood I can get into the house in 1 trip.

    The house can be nice looking in the summer.

    I like it, might have to do something similar when my current one rusts out.
