1. Pair of hinges(you can get these fairly cheap from goodwill or restore)
2. 4# casters
3. Screws: 3 inch and 1-1/4 inch.
4. Small piece of chain.
Step 3: Start Up
Here's your cut list for the frame:
1. 4# 38 3/8 inch 2x4's
2. 4# 22 inch 2x4's
3. 4# 36 inch legs

Step 4: Install Hardware
Step 5: Construction
Put the legs on one of your frames. Take your other frame and put it on the floor. Set the frame with the legs on it on top of the second frame. Screw the legs into the second frame I had to bump a couple of the legs with the rubber mallet to get them straight before I screwed them in.
I initially used four screws but three is plenty.
Step 6: Walls. (Optional)
The sides were 24 1/2 inches,
and the back was 42 3/8 inches.
