Working on my project, I was able to come up with the frame and full list of bill of materials and measurements for my Disc Golf Cart. I decided to use T-joint extrusions (80/20) which is easy to assemble together. I first started out measuring my disc golf bag that I will be held by the cart. I then drew up plans for the shell that I will have to manufacture. After I was satisfied with how it looked, went to McMaster Carr to find all the parts I needed. They are expensive but they have everything I was looking for and for everything else that is not the metal I will source from somewhere else. I filled out a complete bill of materials and double and triple checked to make sure I could manufacture the whole frame with the parts I ordered.  The parts should come in Wednesday, then I will be able to manufacture and then I can move to the side and back paneling that is where the main portion of my aesthetic is going to be. I am going to use acrylic for the side paneling and maybe some sort of webbing for the back. So it will be lighter and will have a cool pattern on the back. Below is a screenshot of the materials I that purchased and some drawing of my fame in my sketch book,

  • Hey Joe,
    After reading your post and looking through the images you posted, I am excited to see how this project turns out. It looks like you have really took the time to design and consider the functionality of your project. One thing that I think would make your post about your project better, would be a Bill of Materials, and how each will fit into the project as a whole. Just a suggestion but other than that it looks like you are on the right track!

    Looks great, I appreciate how you are creating something useful for your hobby that will last! Could you go into more detail of what this cart will be holding? It looked pretty different from the existing examples you posted.

    I love that you are making something functional and that something you will utilize in the future. How will you implement your aesthetic exactly?
