My wife really likes going to the farmers market on Saturday mornings.. but she hates carrying bags of fresh produce. She needed a cart, but she didn't want me to buy one ( and neither did I).
So, my intrepid assistant, right-hand man, and son Max, brain-stormed with me to see what we could re-purpose in the garage to build a cart.
After some looking around, we found a milk crate, some wheels from an old fertilizer spreader, and the handle from an unused scooter.
Our next stop was Lowes, where we wandered around looking at various hardware to complete our build.
With $10 in hardware, it was back to the garage to start the build!
