So we’ve all probably seen those expensive factory carts around. If you are into old wood, metal wheels and the history of old factories, they are truly an item to be had. The problem is, I only have one coffee table space in my house. I do need lot of side tables and I imagine most people do too.
So..I created this side table with genuine factory cart cast iron wheels. I found drawer pulls that matched well and actually created drawers on each side of the table. Why? Well, having drawers on one side seemed a bit to much like a table and not really enough like a functional cart.
The wood top is somewhat darker and the drawer fronts are planed bardwood stained a lighter cooler. Finished with tung oil.
Still looking for a small cast iron handle to place on one side to further underscore the factory cart aspect. If you have an idea, please let me know.
Thanks for looking!
