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.
