Bucket hauler plywood attachment question

how to attach pylwood base to metal Mark, you could just attach the wheel base panels ( The triangle and the shaft ) directly to the wood... Only 8 bolts there, plus the middle iron support brace. I am not getting why you need to sandwich the base panels between the wheels and the wood?

Thanks for the question Pedro. I hear what you are saying, and it may have been quicker to do it that way, but keep in mind you will need to have a bolt head protrude through and I wanted a smooth shoveling surface for days when we use it for mulch or sawdust. The metal also functions as a splash guard where water is most likely to splash up to when going across the creek.

water protection, makes perfect sense. on that note, I would paint the underside with that blue paint you have. not to make it match, but to put the paint thick enough between the seams and all bolts so that water does not accumulate there by capillary action. That should keep rust and loose screws at bay.
