Bought cart from Craigslist – cleaned it up. Added a tabletop to bring it to coffee table height (18”) using reclaimed beams re-sawed to 1.5”

That is a very nice looking cart. Going in your home?

Thanks for compliments everyone

WayneC – it’s for a customer (work friend)

The table top is made from beams taken from a Philly row house (free) – about 100 years old
