This instructable is for building a cart to hold a 2 frame honey extracting barrel, 5 gallon honey bucket with strainer.
And a metal bucket to hold the capped wax.
This came about last year when i harvested honey, and dragged all the frames back to the garage to uncap them this as messy and labor intensive. So i needed something that could secure the extracting barrel when spinning the frames. And that i could drag it to the hives and extract the honey at the hives this should be easier on both me and the bee's.
Step 1: Stuff You Will Need
honey extractor 5 gallon bucket
A U Bolt
Step 2: Step One: Build The Base
I didnt measure anything here, so i cant give you lengths. i just built this around the size of the buckets.
So i built a rectangle out of 2 x 4. Then cover half with some ply wood, (all of this wood was from a floor i tore out)
Step 3: Step Two: Build The Vertical Support
Now build a second 2 x 4 box and make a T with it on the other and nail the whole thing into place.
Step 4: Step Three: Build The Second Level
Now you have your vertical support nail some 2 x 4 on each side and another plywood shelf on top of that, make sure that it hangs over half the bucket and is tall enough for the bucket with strainer to sit under.
Step 5: Step Four: Second Level Add On's
I added two things to the top of this some boards on the sides to hold the extracting bucket into place. And a couple of plywood strips on the back, this is two hold the bucket at a slant so the honey can pour into the bottom bucket faster.
Now dot where the U bolt will fit over and secure the pour spout on the extracting bucket and drill those holes.
