Homeschool Library Cart

We began homeschooling again this year.  I had forgotten how many books it takes to home school...  Wait, can someone help me, please... is it "homeschool" or "home school" or "home-school"?  Obviously, my wife is the one teaching the language arts.

Anyway, after the first couple of weeks my OCD kicked into high gear and I had to find a solution to the problem of 300 books on the kitchen table each day.  To complicate the situation, our daughter finds great joy in pulling books off of shelves and flinging them across the room so it had to be mobile.

My solution was a rolling library cart.  I looked on Amazon and laughed hysterically at the $200+ price tag.  So, poverty and necessity being the mother of invention, I decided to make my own.  I found a great free plan that I modified to fit our needs and these pictures are the result.

The only thing I would do different is put larger, soft rubber wheels on the cart rather than the small hard wheels.  Oh well, when the kids are gone it will make a great cart to store recently bottled homebrew....  is it "homebrew" or "home-brew"....
