Restoration of Turn of the Century Industrial Cart Into a Coffee Table


Restoration work completed on this turn of the century industrial cart transformed into a coffee table.
Restoration Process: Remove and discard the top, disassemble the entire cart, strip the hardware down to bare metal, prime and paint glossy black, drill out all hardware to accommodate new lag screw size.
Remove all metal from the main 2" x 6" oak base and run all four pieces through a thickness planer.
Reassemble the newly painted hardware to the oak base boards. Cut 1" x 12" pieces of solid oak as the top - sand, stain and poly the oak.
All done!
UPDATE: Additional pics added that came from our Customer after it made it to its new home.
