I’m building this bar cart as a wedding gift. Its black walnut and maple. I’m wondering if someone can please help with wheels. I’ve been looking everywhere. Trying to find two decorative spoked wheels for one side, and then maybe 2 casters for the other side. Any sites you can provide with wheels that would be good, please send em my way.

Also, question on the finish. I applied danish oil to the unit. I was wondering what my best bet would be to keep the finish as close to its current look as possible. In other words, I do not want anything glossy or shiny on it, but I do think it might need a topcoat to protect it?

EDIT: Added a few more pictures and made a matching cutting board yesterday.

EDIT2: Bought two antique brass casters, will try and make the other two wheels from wood I have around already.

Just type “Casters” for an Ebay search, there are lots to choose from…

Looking for decorative wheels, spoked wheels I think. Two fancy wheels on the left, two casters on the right.

For the spoked wheels , make them . Norm made some on the NYWS when he made his Patio Trolly , they didn’t look to hard to do. You should be able to find episode on youtube. The original he showed had eight spoke wheels but he made his with 4 spokes.

I found it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsIYAq6Cns4
