A good friend of mine has a little country store by the name of The Country Mouse she had this cart that needed refurbished in a bad way, the old wheels were just screwed to the side of the cart and would not roll so I decided it needed some help. I reinforced the frame and left the old body intact, I made these wheels and put them on a axle so they would roll, Installed a new floor, and gave it a new paint job, and made her a sign for it. I didn’t get a before picture I wished I had though the difference is unreal. She was so excided to get the new cart and just loved it. Thanks for looking.

That’s a nice rebuild. It will definitely draw the customers’ attention.

Very nice rehab on the cart, and I really like that ferocious guard dog. Thank you for sharing.

Bill you did an excellent job on the cart. I know the lady will enjoy the mod you made to her cart. Lot easier to roll than drag. Don’t it make ya feel good to do a good job for someone?

A neighbor brought me an old rocker built in the 19th century. Nothing fancy but the rocker was broken off. I was able to fix the rocker in a short time. He asked what he owed me and I said thank you. Still tried to pay me but I told him that’s what neighbors are for to help each other when they can. He left pleased.

Thanks! guys for all the nice comments I really enjoyed this rebuild.

Dewayne you are right I get more pleasure out of just helping someone with my woodworking than building something to sell you can see the joy in someone’s face when you give them something that was made by your own hands. Thanks for looking !
