Pitching mound


My nephew has become quite the athlete.  To help him stay tuned up for baseball in the off-season, he needed a pitching mound at home so he could practice.  I found dimensions for a wooden practice mound at the PowerChalk blog.

Being constructed from treated lumber and plywood, I knew it was going to be heavy.  Since it would also need to be somewhat portable, I decided to add a wheel.  Here is what I came up with.
