    I'm looking to build a pvc cart like this;

    And my question is if anyone knows how sturdy 1 1/2 inch pvc pipe as far as its structural support, i was thinking of screwing some two by fours horizontally like a deck on the bottom of it to have a firm base but i dont know if the pvc can take that, also where can i find these wheels to attach onto the pvc pipe for cheap?

    Schedule 40 pipe is pretty damn strong. It will take getting drilled and bolted or you could just cut a piece of plywood to fit for a bottom. If you make sure all the joints are good and clean before you hit it with the 2-part glue, you should be good to go.

    that definitely wont be very strong with just PVC, i wouldnt use 2x4 either , a piece of plywood would be stronger and hold everything square. wheels could be bought at harbor freight. but then again so could a cart that will be much better and under $75

    If you want to go heavy duty and last a longer time use sched. 80 PVC pipe and fittings.
    I built a couple pratice hockey goals for the kids and they outlasted them.
    Remember to paint the finished product to protect it from the suns UV rays.

    Good luck on the project.

    If you are worried about strength get some SCH 80.
