A little boy with a big bass

Jakey, our 10 yr old, has decided he wanted to learn the bass. Here is the problem, a 1/4 bass is 5'5" in height and weighs a good bit too. 
Granted we live about a block away from school but it is an awfully big and awkward thing to carry. 

Ben designed and built a light weight hand truck for Jakey's bass out of PVC. 

Fairly simple, straightforward design that will make Jakey's walks to and from school so much easier. We also put old snow blower tires on it so hopefully that should help keep it mobile this winter.

He can already play the star wars Darth Vader march! ha ha ha

My silly boy.

Heading off to school. He said this made his walk to and from school so much easier he said.
