Hello Yvette,

Thanks for your email.
I have come across many books on go kart building, however none of which 
were specificaly for building a "wooden" go-kart.
I'm currently doing a book review of:

It however is for building a metal go-kart and covers welding amongst all 
the other details.


Another book on karts, karting in general and building karts is:
The NatSKA guide to karts and karting
by Brian Lord
Published in 1984, Castrol, Educational Division (Swindon)

I highly recommend this book. It has lots of information on making various 
go-karts including some few 
details on one from plywood.
It also has lots of information on karting in general. It also has an 
educational focus and talks about making a go-kart in a classroom 
I think this book could be out of print however.

I hope this information helps.

Best regards,
