AskDIY: Replacing and reinforcing the side panels of a broken printer cart for greater weight-bearing capacity

2022.01.20 22:09 Dezmancer AskDIY: Replacing and reinforcing the side panels of a broken printer cart for greater weight-bearing capacity

I recently bought a printer cart to move some heavy material around my apartment and, wouldn't you know it, I didn't heed the weight limits and overloaded the top with something far too heavy for it (an old box TV) and the cast broke out the sides of the unit as soon as I tried push it from the flat laminate floor onto a slightly raised carpeted area.
I was pretty much ready to write it off, but then thought that I might still come out ahead with less money spent and a hardier stand if I fix it up instead just buying something new. Here's what I am planning to do:

  1. Replace the side panels with similarly sized pieces cut from a stronger wood (they were just particle board). Paint them to match the color of the other pieces.
  2. Replace the shitty plastic casters with better ones like these.
I haven't really done anything with wood before, but this seems like a pretty straightforward project. The side panels are about 26Lx18W and I was thinking to take one of them to a place like home depot and ask them to cut two pieces of 3/4 plywood to match (there's a polished type of plywood I saw there that should have a similar texture to the other pieces). I'd prefer to have it in solid lumber wood rather than engineered wood, but AFAIK stores only stock it in narrower planks that can't match the dimensions I need.
From there it's just a matter of matching the pre-drilled holes for things like shelving, drawer brackets, and connections. The original panels were designed for cam locks, but it was pointed out to me that I could just make new holes for wood screws to fasten the pieces together instead. I like this idea since I wouldn't have to bother with making holes for a cam lock, but do wonder how I could could go about covering the screws up since I'd need to drill straight through the top and the sides at the bottom.
I was also thinking of reinforcing the top panel with something like corner braces if this would improve the overall weight capacity up top. I'd like to have as much support from the new side panels as possible since they'll be stronger, and it'd be great I could put upwards of 200 lbs on this thing comfortably. Would that be effective, or it just overkill?
Appreciate any advice and suggestions for what I've laid out here.

2022.01.20 22:09 lightpinknails Unbearably Lonely

I’m a 25 year old female and I feel like my life is a failure. I don’t have any close friends and not even many not close friends, and my love life has just been a lot of abandonment and rejection. I’m divorced. I don’t like my career. I’ve always just wanted to be a mom and have kids, and that’s what I still want, but it’s not going to happen anytime soon. I work with a guy who broke up with me and I hate seeing him everyday, it’s just a reminder of me being alone. My faith is important to me but I don’t even feel like I have a way of living it out. I try getting connected at church but it’s been really difficult going to church alone. I just don’t like my life at all, it’s unbearably lonely and void of love apart from my relationship with God. I don’t know when this loneliness will end, I’ve been wanting it to end for the past few years now but I feel even more alone than before. I’ve tried going on dating apps to meet someone but that hasn’t worked either. Sometimes it feels so bad I just want to die. I’ve asked God to kill me before but he won’t. The thing that really hurts the most is I just don’t have anyone close to me, and like I said it’s been this way for years now. I don’t know when it will end, and I’m so tired of living this way. It just feels like my life is a failure because who the hell would want to live this way, without much purpose or joy or love. I don’t know if there’s any advice you could give me, but I kind of just wanted to vent too.

I could imagine the final battle be between Ikki & Vice after Giff's defeat.
Still.... hope Vice lives. Ikki and him make a fine team!

2022.01.20 22:09 ahhhtoomuchpressure Fellow lawyers (or non-lawyers, I’m not here to judge), does it drive you crazy when housewives/husbands with legal issues talk about their issues on the show?

I’m a public defender, so thankfully I won’t ever represent a real housewife, but I swear it drives me crazy how often housewives will talk about their legal troubles on the show! Even when they don’t talk about the facts more than to say they’re innocent, I can’t imagine their lawyers didn’t tell them to zip it. If I were their lawyer I would be so mad at them for staying on the show let alone talking about it. Literally everything they say can and will be used against them. Anyone else want to just scream at them?
