ok, this is my first instructable, so please leave me comments on how to improve, i have alot of tools in my dad's shop, so suggestions for new instructables are appreciated, 

Step 1: materials:

ok; here are the things you are going to need;)
youwill need:
1. a board, the body
2.  swivel wheels
3. drill, sadly, my father only lets me use the hand one:(
4.  a drill bit that matches the size of the bolt(s) on your swivel wheels, in my  case, it was 5/16"
5. nuts or tops for the bolt,( mine came with the shelves i got)
these are optional!!!!!!!!;)
foam, i used the foam bag that surrounded our new monitor:)
2.  scizorz, to cut the foam
You can buy different caster wheels that don't need to be bolted through the timber.<br><br>Or another way to stop the bolts from marring what ever your moving use another peice of timber with holes large enough to go over the nuts. This will give you a nice flat surface and a wider board will give you more stability.<br><br> Well done on your first Instructable.<br>
Remark the holes in the carpet!
I constructed two similar to this approx 15 years ago and didn't install a soft covering. <br>My board was glued two 3/4 plywood pieces, approx your lengths but 12+&quot; wide.<br>Down one side of the board, drill three finger sized holes 3/4-1&quot; dia for three fingers to carry that sucker, similar to a bowling ball (thats why they put holes in bowling balls). Place the hole approx 2&quot; from the edge having the middle hole a little more inward to make a comfortable fit. <br><br>Whats great about these dollies, one can use them as roll-around stools working on the vehicles or what not, anything low in the garage or driveway. <br>Good job, Lad. Next time make um wider so it will not flip with ya, dropping you on the floor while washing the car wheels. Keep having fun. :)
If you have an old rug and a staple-gun. <br>Staple the rug around the board and cut off the excess. <br><br>or just remove the foam all-together.<br>
also plz tell other ppl about this cuz i need at least 1 follower
good idea! i actually have both of those! and i actually removed the foam because it looked ugly, and it was really just anexampe of what youcould do to pad it. this is what it looks like w/out the foam, i took these pics for you
