This project is well worth the effort to build. I used reclaimed heart pine 1” in thickness for the upper sides and end. The bottom frame is 2” x 4” with 1” x1” cleats to support inside tongue and groove bottom panel. Lids are removable that reveals a large storage area for blankets, magazines or for hiding the remote during football season, lol. Front and rear loops, wheel mount are fabricated at the shop, basic hardware store supplies. Wheels are reclaimed from old cotton bale carts or custom made from local metal fabricator. It has a distressed look with saw marks (sides & top). Using a torch to lightly burn the wood and then sanded lightly in order to leave burnt area inside saw mark to give a more rustic look. Finished with dark wood tone stain and 3 coats of lacquer, sanding between each application. It leave durable water resistant surface and a shine.
