Hi All
Thought I would make an all wood lumber cart as my coffee table. Would love to here your thoughts. Thanks for looking.

Favoriting this. Wanted one of the real ones, but cost too much. This is more of a challenge and can be done with any wood. Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic work here, very detailed and authentic to the original carts. Great work on the wheels, I assume these have steamed and bent tires. Very nice. The thing that caught my eye though, is that retro TV, is it even color? or just B & W? Cool.

Incedible job. I use these carts all day long at work and this is an excellent recreation of the real thing!

Gotta admit, when I first saw the post listing I figured that someone had bought an old mill cart and re-purposed it. Then I opened the link….

WOW! You actually MADE the whole cart, wheels and all! Props to you Tom, BIG TIME props to you !

It’s very nice. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks. I can’t even imagine how many of these old original carts I have seen at furniture factory auctions over the last 40 years. You have made a fine replica, Tom.
