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 !

And WELCOME to LJs too !

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.
