Before I entered my “chair phase” my wife wanted a tea cart. This tea cart is modelled after one that is in my parents home. It is 28” high and the top when fully open is 25” long and 36” wide. When closed it is 15” wide. The wheel is 13” in diameter and made of boards laminated together. The cricles where routed with a circle jig and a template for the “spokes”. The spindle for the handle was the first thing I ever turned and was the “excuse” for purchasing a lathe. The end opposite the handle includes a small drawer. I used threaded rod for the axles. The rossettes on the wheels and handle were purchased and hot glued on to cover up the attachment holes. It is made from mahogany boards that were left over from a home renovation project and finished with stain and satin finished polyurethane.
