3/4" plywood scraps
3/4" dowel, 8" long
4 - high quality, non marking full swivel caster wheels with 3/4" screws for attaching casters to plywood bottom
1 - 3/4" plywood @ 2-1/2" x 11-5/8" - bevel bottom end at 10 degrees off square - front
1 - 3/4" plywood @ 15-3/4" x 8" - bottom
1 - 2x2 @ 10-5/8" - front cut at 10 degrees - center support
2 - 1x2 @ 4 - 5/8" both ends cut at 10 degrees parallel to each other, long point to short point - back legs
1 - 2x2 @ 4-1/4" both ends cut at 10 degrees not parallel, long point to long point - back support
1- 3/4" plywood @ 6" x 12-3/8" - front cut at 10 degrees off square, long point measurement - seat
1 - 1x2 @ 5" - seat back rest
Attach the 1x2 legs to the 2x2 back support piece with 1-1/2" self tapping screws or similar. I used Spax brand - they are available in small packages in different sizes.
Then attach the main center support to the back. I used 2-1/2" screws and glue - you could also use a pocket hole here too.
Next, attach to the base. Back to the 1-1/2" screws. You don't have to be perfect here, just get it in the right position.
Now the front piece. I recommend plywood here over using a 1x3 just because plywood will support the handle bars better. The bottom needs to be cut a a 10 degree off square bevel. So I cut the plywood first into the right size, and then used the miter saw to bevel that front end (you could also set your circular saw to a 10 degree bevel and cut it).
Attach caster wheels with screws less than 3/4" and the handle bars.
