I'm glad you enjoyed it! Another interesting topic just released in a journal last November is how they made diamond batteries from control rods that last over 5,000 years!!

Simple and effective! Nice work!
Wow, this is really beautiful! Nice job!!
You're exactly right. Thanks, I'm glad this was helpful!
Painting is the next step. :)
Thank you, I'm glad it was helpful! I used a joist hanger there as well, though I don't think it's in the picture.
PhilS43, You've made some good points. I would add that there are numerous other was to improve this design, at a cost. Your suggestions would easily double or triple the price of this project. What would you use it for? Are you looking to park a car on it or store a few boxes? What is your budget like? Does style or appearance matter? These are all things one should consider when designing a project, since "there are many ways to skin a cat..." I contend this is a very effective design for the intended purpose, and certainly the best "bang for your buck".

CNC Laser Cutter Journey
I think you make a very good point. This is only my second project of this type and it looks like I may have made some erroneous assumptions. Thanks for the heads up!!
Good question. I completed this project back in January of this year (2016) but I believe I used the line for reference then positioned the level as a rail guide for my saw. I'll go back and edit that section to clarify this point. Thank you for the feedback.
This is a great instructable! Nice design, thoroughly planed, and well exicuted. Nice Job!!
It's both a beauty and a beast. Nice job!
I'm glad it was helpful! I enjoy being able to help in some little way. Thank you for the comment!! :)
That's really cool! You should post some pictures on here. I'd love to see it!!
I'm really diggin this idea!! haha
Home Guarduino - IoT Connected Security System
Well that's embarrassing. Thanks for the correction!
Yeah, initially I thought of doing it that way, but where's the fun in that?? This way, now my kid LOVES to take out the trash!! lol
Not a problem Kim311. I'm not offended at all by your corrections! In fact, I'm glad you brought it to my attention since it encouraged me to dig out any other mistakes, to which there were plenty! I suppose this is a lesson for me to take some time and not rush things. Feel free to correct away!! :)
You bring up a very good point. I considered using rivets for that very reason but as you can see it's all mounted on a cheap plastic can so I decided to keep it simple and leave out those finishing touches.
Thanks, I'd like to think so. But that's what kids are for!! lol
So true!! haha

I just did a search on there website under "shelf brackets" and they displayed on the second row from the top, priced at $1.48 - $1.88 (depending on size). I've also seen them at Home Depot for around the same price. I'm sure if you walk into any of their stores and ask an associate they'll show you exactly where to find them. Good Luck on your project!!

Understandable!! But considering I am just an intern and don't profit, at all, from any advertising, this is more like a "look at the cool stuff I get to build!!" type thing. :)
There are a few reasons the wheels were designed to be on the outside; 1) It's much easier to bolt on a wheel-well on the outside than fabricate the frame around the wheel and adding more labor/costs. 2) The design was intended to be compact. Bigger isn't always better. Sure you could make it a meter wider or even a few meters longer but there is a trade off when doing all that. Larger is heavier, less mobile, more expensive, and so forth.
Fully loaded they go for about $19,600
