So I was asked to try and salvage this ould milk cart. I tought what the heck how hard could that be? (This was before I actually saw the dang thing) Then I went and picked it up. Man god thing my family has a farm nextdoor with a full shop of tools to fix tractors and plows. We had to heat and bend this old thing about a dozen times to get everything as close to square as we could. The box on the bed is going to be a planter box she was very happy with the end product. The whole thing is from more of my salvaged old barn wood. I am gonna have to find another barn soon before I start to run low.

The more I looked at this project, the more I had to say. Seeing projects like this brings both happiness and sadness. I’m happy that this piece was saved, but sad because, so many of the old pieces are being lost, or sold for scrap. The really sad thing is that when they are gone there will be no more. All we make anymore is disposable junk. So glad you were able to salvage this piece of Americana.

I’ve never seen one before. I’m glad you could save it. Someday that will be in a museum.
