This is the second one I have built. This was for a friend of mine. Decided to dress this one up a bit, as I put some handles on each end and the fluer de lis alongside the zipcode. The hardware and fleur de lis nails came from leevalley. Used Dark Walnut Minwax stain and wipe on poly. See my other project for the first time I built this table. I like the darker stain myself. Oh well, on to the next project. Amazing what you learn from simple projects such as this. I hand cut all the wood pieces with my new crosscut PAX panel saw. Waaaaay more fun than firing up the circular saw.

Nice cart
I like the darker color.
It gives it that aged look.

I’ve seen something like this before also, just not nearly as nice. The fluer de lis and zip are a great touch. Beautiful piece Jamie.

My wife vito’d this project for our living room coffee table! Maybe for the basement I’ll get away with it. Yours came out very nice. I usually don’t like stain but darkening this does help give it the aged look. Very nice!

You did a great job on this cart. There’s a guy on etsy who sells quite a bit of these there. You might want to check it out. It surprised me how many he sells because shipping/freight on these is so high. But sell he does. :)

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Rivergirl- Those are the plans I used. If you look at my first project here (another cart table), it follows their plans more closely.

I know I’m joining the conversation very late—I’m catching up on projects posted from the beginning.

Nice, practical cart. I also like the dark aged-look stain. Good execution on this project, Jamie.
