More specifically, it’s cheap and what the old cart we had the mixer and some other sound gear in was made of. It showed signs of failing since I had known it, but finally decided to completely disintegrate one morning on it’s way out of the elevator. And thus I was motivated to actually build the new cart I’d been thinking about.
I built it almost completely out of scrap crate wood from work – used another piece of 1/2″ plywood for the shelves & base. It could really use a coat of finish, but it’s very functional and fairly solid.
- Completely close-able & latch-able
- Hidden lid latch
- Bottom compartment to stow the snake
You can see the latch detail in the gallery below – a piece of 1/2″ aluminum angle fits in to slots cut in the rails that hold the lid together. Shut the lid first and when the door is shut, it holds the lid down.
