Here's my second project this spring. I already had constructed the 10" riser platform several years back, it raises the scope up to a comfortable height for me to view through the eyepiece without having to be bent over so much. Adding the "wheelbarrow" type handles and wheels makes it a snap to wheel out from the garage to the pad and set it right in place. If the handles or wheels become a stumbling point, they just detach with wing nuts in a couple minutes. Now I don't have to lug the 75 pounds of scope and base any more, that was becoming a deterrent to wanting to set up some nights.
