This is a pair of carts a family member wanted after seeing my last project. He is going to donate to a pleasants forever organization. One is solid oak exterior, with drawers and a pull out shelf. The other is oak with walnut top, drawer fronts and trim. Both have caster wheels and wooden knobs that I made. Thanks for taking a look. Hope it inspires something for fellow LJs.

Being from Arkansas, I’m typically a fan of oak, but that walnut looks great!

Both are nice but I agree with Buzz, the walnut is just stunning. I’m not familiar with the charity organization what are they know for?

Fantastic carts! Great design and build, like the handles. I’m sure they will last for a very long time. Excellent work!

Thanks Jeff, sounds like a great cause. Could you share the steps you took to make the handles? They look too small to use a router on???

Beig1960 I used a 1” square pc about 5-6 long. And cut 1 pc in each end using router table & miter gauge. 1st bit 1/2 core box bit. Then 1/2 straight bit behind core area to make finger grab. Last I used 45* chamfer bit.
