I’m guessing you are looking for the folding style portage wheels? There aren’t any plans that I’ve ever found. There was a guy from the Iron Range that used to build them, but I believe he passed away years ago. There have been different variations out there that I have seen but mostly all similar in design. I made a set years ago but got rid of them.

The best store bought portage wheel is a flooring dolly also known as a two wheeled carpet cart. You run a strap up and over the boat to secure it. It works great and my extended family has been using one for over 25 years.
