The ends are original cast iron ends from a Van Brunt grain drill. Hinge hardware was made from parts book photo’s from sheet metal. Box sides, top and bottom are poplar that has been primed and painted. The feet are oak and clear finished. My father taught me to never paint wood, ironically this was a project he commisioned me to do. All hardware are period correct, square. I still think we should have used oak and clear finished it, the red cast ends would have given it a nice contrast like the feet do. The paint was sprayed, the yellow was hand painted, 5 or 6 coats if I remember correctly.
