Always liked the factory cart coffee tables…hot item right now. Thought I would get one. Been looking for a while…thought I would get the wheels and hardware and build the wood part… Found the rare flower style wheels at a website. Used some rustic (knotted) white oak wood I had and painstakingly matched the grain and knots. Used dark Walnut Watco Danish oil then used General Finishes Amour Coat.

I saw one of those awhile back in a ladies living room, thought it was pretty cool. Never knew you could buy the hardware. Where did you find it, and is it antique or replica?

They are antique Lineberry floral pattern. Came with years of paint and grime. I cleaned them up and painted with black hammered look spray paint. Just google factory Cart Hardware and they are around and pretty easy to get, but not cheap. Got these from Nelson Storage on line.

Fantastic coffee table! The wood is beautiful and the hardware is perfect for the vintage style and look of the piece. Excellent job!

Great looking project. The character of the wood speaks volumes in a piece like this.
Well done.
