Steel engine cart revamped

Picked up a dirty, greasy old steel engine cart from a mechanic shop.

After a little cleanup, I decided it needed a top to make it a little more presentable.

Found some old 2 x 6 lumber that had some character & stained it dark and attached it to the cart with some big hardware.

Looking back I should have used black hardware or painted/distressed the hardware...but turned out OK even with the somewhat shiny hardware.

Nice job on the stand. I know there was some intense scrubbing on anything from a mechanic's shop. I like the contrast on your hardware/wood stain from what I can see. Quantities of dark, heat-treated carriage bolts can be hard to find. I've been lucky on clean-outs, farm auctions and garage sales for old hardware. The down-side is the storage of the stuff. Thanx for showing off your product! keep it up! Posted: 8:36 am on December 18th
