Tilting Plywood Cart

Hey MechMateys! I made a thing, and it is glorious.

I give you the Tilting Plywood Cart! Made from 0.71 Baltic Birch (or 18mm if you prefer). Uses just over half a sheet. Four 3" swivel lock casters let you roll it any which way. 1/8x1 steel bar has a notch that locks the cart in the horizontal position, then you just pull the cord to release. The center of gravity of the sheet is over the pivot point so it won't slam down when you tilt it.

I'll type up some instructions to go along with the construction photos and plans, and post at a later date. For now, here are some photos of the completed cart.

Strange.. I can see them just fine.

Is anyone else having trouble seeing the photos? If nobody but me can see them it's probably a privacy setting in google photos I need to change.
