I have always liked these early church carts but they have always eluded me in the wild.

I found this one folded up in the corner of a warehouse sale. It is cast aluminum and probably from the late 20s.

A few silicone pads from my local hardware store, a glass top from the "free pile" at a local garage sale and a wee bit of cleaning was all that was needed to finish this project off.

It no longer holds coffins but it does a great job of holding my coffee!

This is an incredible piece. Love the pattern it creates when collapsed...and the wheels!
