Open-source DIY Bike Trolley

How to build a simple bike trolley with repurposed material and hand tools to replace you car when going to the market?

Over the summer holidays, I built a wooden bike trolley with friends and family to limit our travels by car. The build was conducted using repurposed wood and second-hand bike parts and hand tools only. A comprehensive open-source guide with custom plans available on the DIY platform Low-tech Lab wiki.
