Default Latest mods to my diy cart

I installed a phone holder for scorekeeping and video recording shots, drink holder and 2 outside slots for holding frequently thrown discs. I wasn't sure if I would prefer this cart over a bag but after using it for 6 months, I much prefer it as long as the terrain is reasonable. Bonus points if you can figure out what disc was sacrificed to make the disc slots.(should be pretty easy to figure out)

How heavy is your cart? Did you put a Condor on each side?

I would estimate 30 to 40 lbs with 20 discs in it. And 1 Condor cut in half makes 2 perfect sized disc slots on each side of the cart.

Condor works if you have an old Condor sized disc or bigger too worn in to use for play/dinged up, I just hate wasting a new disc this way unless I had one lying around that I was not using.

I suppose any big diameter disc like a Condor or bigger could work. I personally would use a Discraft Sky-Styler for my disc as it is about the same size as a Condor yet deeper so I could fit two driver/shallow midrange discs those pockets. The bonus is I can't use a Sky-Styler as the disc is too smooth on parts of the disc to work for throwing until a Sky-Styler is worn in a bit. I tried using a newer Sky-Styler for a throw and catch disc but it was not very good.

Part 1: Long post warning...

I have been wanting to make a DIY cart for some time. I decided to take the plunge and started making one. This is what I have so far. I'll preface with: I like the structure/look of the Delta. The Zuca does nothing for me. My opinion.

I started with a couple baskets I found at Menards. The dimensions were on par for what I wanted the size to be. Also some PVC (not used yet, might end up not...), corrugated plastic board, foam, plastic sheet, etc. Sisnoot (the cat) was neither leased from or purchased at Menards. Used materials, so far, amount to ~$60. I still have to get the wheels...


About a week later, I have the beginnings of a main compartment




If interested, here is the Lowdown:
- The top is the bottom of a second basket (these baskets stack nicely) with most of the basket sawed off. I attached the the top with a 12" continuous hinge. Fits very nicely. The seat is a couple pieces of 1" foam glued together and wrapped in white plastic sheeting (it's the stuff you can put in your kitchen cupboards that hold dishware in place; this may get another layer of something more durable down the road). The foam part is screwed onto the top.
- The bottom is a complete, unaltered basket. The cross-divider-bracing in the compartment is made from corrugated plastic, a couple pieces glued together and cut to size. More plastic surrounds the storage compartments, and rests on the bottom. The "jankiest" looking part is this cross piece, at the moment, as I sewed some of the white plastic sheet to the top (to add a little structure, integrity, and to cover up the sharp edges of the corrugated plastic. The cross piece acts as addition support (carries some weight when sitting on it). As is, I fit 24 discs, including 6 mids and 3 putters.
- Moving forward, I plan to put some corrugated plastic pieces in the square holes (might make it look like a Rubix cube, since I am into that also, or just one or two colors... we'll see). I will make a "dolly" out of [mostly] PVC pipe (probably 1") and attach the basket to it to comprise a cart. I may try to incorporate a hockey stick as the vertical handle extension, but we will see.

TLDR; I'm making a DIY cart out of various materials. This is the first installment/update that consists of creating the foundation of the basket. I still have plenty of work to do. It fits 24 discs and I can sit on it.

Okay so for handle is that a hockey stick without the bottom part, the kind that take an special bottom puck hitting part and fit in the straight part that hits puck or a full one piece hockey stick with puck hitting part of stick cut off?

I would cut off the blade and just use the shaft. Id have to figure something out to make an actual handle on top.

I did not know technical terms, sorry. They do make just the Shaft that takes a separate blade and not just a Street Hocky set. Could use the Shaft to the top and just put Hokey/sports tape on the handle part.
