I was tasked to build two cub carts for the boy scouts. They gave me two sets of wheel chair casters and plans for a kids cub cart and one for a adult cub cart. it is a race kind of like pine wood cars. it will be held this Saturday. I have the kids one done and it as been tested by the scouts and meets approval. O and it fast and a bit showy.

The cart is made out of 3 8’ 2×4 fir milled to 1 1/2×3 6\16, maple peaces and mdf covered with laminate

2.0 is on the way.

That’s a great Cub Cart. I help the Cub Scout troop each year in our neighorhood cutting out their pine wood derby blanks. It’s a lot of fun and the boys really enjoy coming to the shop to watch (father’s too)
Super Job! Keep up the great work.

Looks great. Looking forward to the adult version. BTW, I like your file cabinet bench.

Great project. I built two of these about four years ago and they are still in operational order. In fact, the kids have now gotten a hold of them and have added a bunch of color and character.

Looks like they will hold up well to the abuse the boys will put it through.

Brings back memories to some of the crazy contraptions my friends and I built when we were kids. Ours were no where near that nice, nor did they work very well. Usually something would break and we would end up with some sort of wreck. That was half the fun. If I think about it from today’s perspective, it is amazing we ever survived to be adults (relative use of the term adult). We never wore any kind of safety gear.

looks like fun to build and to drive, I can’t wait till my boy gets old enough for something like this, how young do the scouts start anyway?
