This is a factory cart that I made for my in-laws as a Christmas present. The wood is some kind of Pine or Fir that came from 3 shipping pallets. I made it with the idea they would use it outside as a decoration on there ranch. To my surprise they liked it so much that they are using it as a coffee table. Needless to say I was totally stoked.
I used three different finishes on this. I started with a coat of shellac to seal the wood and prevent the stain from blotching. I followed with a coat of stain and then finished with an oil based semi gloss polyurethane.
I found the copper tiles that I inlaid into the sides at Copper Sinks Direct .
