POT LUCK DINNER TOTE CART

Postby bobhenry » Mon Jul 01, 2013 7:42 am

I have seen folks struggling to cart over chairs, hot dutch oven pots ladened with food, cups, plates, beverages of choice, napkins and all the necessary items for a good ol' pitch in dinner. Often multiple trips are needed and on these occasions I always seemed to be a 1/2 mile away :x

Well I have seen the occasional little red wagon but no one has made a pot luck trolly that I have seen.....

Well some damn fool went and done it ! :D

It was 4 am and I was going over the packing list for the CRA and one thought led to another. About 5:30 I dragged in this shower seat and started taking measurements. :twisted:

Starting with a shower chair the neighbor threw out and a couple wheels off of one of one the walkers I made the satellite Dutch oven tables out of , I had a rolling frame :thumbsup:

Well a simple plastic tote and I had a body. Some cable clamps a few reinforcement pieces and some other odds and ends of junk I now have a pot luck tote........

Unloaded I can lift it easily with my pinky finger so It has to weigh in somewhere between 6 and 9 pounds.

Rolls nice and with the left over lexan reinforcement inside and strapped outside on the bottom it will hold the stacked dutch ovens and still have a ton of room for plates, serving utensils and what ever else is needed.

The only expense outlay was the little $2.00 basket find at a yard sale. Everything else was laying around :beer:

Wonderful idea, and very resourceful, as usual, Bob!! I'm going to try to
strap the great nephews' plastic wagon on the tongue box for the trip to the CRA. (It's not pretty, but it was my garage sale find for $2.00.)That should help my back a lot carrying stuff to the Pot Luck, the Meet & Greet, etc.
