"DIY" Dobsonian Trolley

Wanna make a scope? Or better still, grind a mirror yourself. Or, you have some good tips in making a really useful accessory? This is the place to show what your hands can do...

Very nice and professional looking! Can set up shop!

Btw, in Pic 4, is that you cutting the 2 handle loops? Might want to be careful on that stage cos your base is on wheels (should preferably be secured down) and your hand is holding near the edge and just beside the hole being cut.

Be safe!
