I seem to have misplaced the before photo.

Curly maple on the frame with dark walnut top.
We actually use this in the shop along with 4 others that are mostly original. 1 has a wooden wheel :)

Now that looks like one sturdy piece of kit! Great job. Your shop must be huge to accomodate 5 of these!

Not huge enough. Could use at least double but then again who couldn’t use a bigger shop! We probably have somewhere around 3500 sq/ft.

Absolutely can handle all the toughest job in the shop. Looks heavy duty and well built. Great job!

That looks sturdy and functional !. I know it takes a lot of effort to make that huge project. Nicely built.

Wow I just got the same exact shop Cart from a client. His wife bought it a auction for like $300.00 and now she wants me to restore it so they can use it as a coffee table. nice job.

Thanks Everyone. Blackcherry, we beat the heck out of this old stuff and it keeps ticking. Have upgraded sanders to the timesaver and oscillating sander after the old one bit the dust. Those are probably the newest machines.

A customer was in our shop one day and saw that we had some of these shop carts. He mentioned that he had one on the side of his house that had been there awhile and would I be interested in buying it. “Yup, how much.” He said it was in bad shape but the hardware was good and he would like $125. I played it cool and said that sounds fair. I put it up on our company facebook and had a few people message me wanting to buy it for a coffee table. It’s not for sale but if someone offered an insane amount I would probably let it go. ;)
