Hi just wanted some advice on timber and timber size used to build a Billy cart for kids?
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @michael84. It's great to have you join us, and many thanks for your question on suitable timber for a billy cart.
I could suggest various sizes, but it's likely a good idea to have a plan to go with those. I suggest following this Step-By-Step video from one of our suppliers, Trojan: How to build a billy cart.
You'll need a length of 90 x 35mm MGP10 Untreated Pine Timber Framing - Linear Metre at 2400mm and one piece of 1200 x 596 x 18mm BC Plywood. You'll also need to pick up a couple of axles and four wheels. If you're looking for extra speed, I'd suggest wheels with bearings in them.
It should be fairly easy to follow along with the video, but give us a shout if you get stuck. I'll be looking forward to some pictures when you're done.
