1880's Reproduction industrial cart

Reproduction 1880's Industrial Cart

We were approached to build a reproduction of an 1880's Industrial Cart that a client had seen at a large hardware retailer, that had a very hefty price tag.  I had already built a very cool harvest table out of some old sawmill lumber for them, and they wanted to compliment that project. 

This cart is built from douglas fir, with a douglas fir flooring top, two heavy drawers, it is 5 feet long, 34 inches high, and 20 inches deep.  All of the hardware is new production, but I stripped it all down from a bright and shiny look, and gave it a rusty patina (through a very simple household chemical process). All the hardware is finished in a matte lacquer, and the entire project is sealed with a catalyzed medium rubbed effect laquer.

Here are some photos of it under construction.

Here is the final project in our store Legendary Antiques:

This unique piece of furniture could be used as a dry sink, sofa table, kitchen island or entertainment center. Custom pieces like this one can be handcrafted in any design, size, or color you may desire, just ask for details.
