Default DIY cart ideas

I felt like this should be separate thread since the other cart thread is essentially modifications to existing carriers.

I've been kicking some ideas of what it would take to create a DIY cart. My main idea is using pvc pipes as the frame and the wheels being similar to the ones you would see on an Instep stroller or something similar. My idea is very bare bones right now and just trying to find out if it is feasible or not.

So, has anyone had any success from building one from scratch? If so, are you willing to divulge some details?

It's funny that you posted that. I have been kicking around some ideas for some time and now I possibly have a chance to make one out of wood.

You can get a used golf bag cart for under $20 at Play it Again Sports. Add one crossbar for stabilization, attach with some cable ties or bungees and you are good to go. Added bonus is higher clearance than the made for dg carts- comes in really handy in the woods.

Not the ones in South Dakota, the vintage Sports Stuff they were selling at the price the old stuff is going for online to people collecting the vintage anything 1990's or older quality sports gear. We do have a Goodwill that would have at times a used Golf Cart for around 20, the older ones for the thinner club bags.

I have seen easily a dozen different custom configurations with these. I would recommend using aluminum angle iron for durability and aesthetics, and it can be found readily available and cut and most hardware stores

I have see similar carts but they used at the time crates the plastic crates the kind used for milk or the lager size up bolted to the cart using U bolts to connect the milk crates to the bag, they used a piece of plastic for the divider cut to correct size so the discs did not rattle and they had a flap hinge using a clear plastic cutting board for the top cover that fit on it if using the next size up or hung over a side. The other guy used a larger crate next size up to have it fit in his Innova competition bag that he cut the bottoms off of to have it fit. To keep the bags from tipping over they used an adjustable aluminium cane non 4 way bottom they took the top handle part off of to have it work for the cart and keep it upright.
