Materials for the middle beam.

Wheels and brackets.

Materials for front and rear axle supports.

Started the build by drilling 12 mm holes to angle irons and end beams.

I attached the angle irons to the end beams with M10x80 bolts...

...and welded nuts to them.

Then I attached the angle irons to the ends of the middle beam and welded them in place.

I also welded nuts to pipes which belong to the end of the posts of the middle beam.

Pipe tacked to the post...

...and welded.

Posts tacked in place.

I drilled holes to wheel brackets and sanded them.

Then I welded the brackets to the end beams and finished welding the posts.

Finally got the rotisserie on its wheels.
