I picked up this 17P cart off CL last spring : HPIM3030.JPG
Needing some side boards before leaf season like I made for my 10P ; HPIM2508.JPG

Got into my 1x4 stash this morning  HPIM3167.JPG These are salvaged from mower crates from the local Husqvarna/Dixon dealer, re-sawn Pine & Fir. Cut what I needed to ruff length with the old Craftsman radial arm:  HPIM3168.JPG . Set the Delta benchtop planer up on saw horses in the garden to save cleanup & planed the lumber to 5/8" thick.  HPIM3169.JPG   HPIM3170.JPG

More to come as I put it all together! ~~ Lowell

Great start Lowell. For leaves you need a lot of cu. ft. so the sides will probably triple your capacity.
