This instructable is for everyone that needs to transport heavy cargo, but doesn't have the proper equipment.
For me it's actually an addition to my 3-Way Sound System.
I needed something that could help me transport my soundsystem. I was looking for bicycle carts on the internet, but I only had a very low budget.
So I took a good look into my backyard, and there I found a easy solution to my problem. The main two ingredients are: a table and a shopping cart.
(The shopping cart is easily replaceable for any type of D.I.Y store wheels.)

Step 1: The Main Ingredient
You basically need two things:
-Set of wheels (I use the wheels of a shopping cart)
Step 2: The Wheels
When using wheels from a D.I.Y shop you can skip this step.
Dismantle the wheels of a shopping cart:
-take of the actual wheels (pic.1)
-take of the suspension (pic.1,2)
-take of the ring where the suspension was attached to. (pic. 3) This can be pretty tricky because the ring is welded to the arm of the cart. Use a grinding machine incl. some protection for your eyes.
Step 3: The Table
Take of the table-legs at the height of your choice. Remember the lower, the more stabel.
Step 4: Attach the Wheels to the Table
Start with attaching the ring to the table-leg. This is the weakest point of the construction. So make sure you really give this all you got.
Drill a hole in the wood to make a little room for the bold of the suspension. Make the hole just a little smaller than the actual bold is.
Use super glue and screws to attach the ring.
Repeat this on each table -leg.
Now attach the suspension with the original bold. Don't go to far with this, you might crack the wood.
Attach the wheels back on the suspension.
Step 5: Finish
So now it's finished, you can choose to add some extra's like a curly bold to pull the cart or a little ridge at the edges to prevent things from falling off.
