drop leaf tea cart

My wife wanted a drop leaf tea cart for a birthday present. Rather than buy one, I built her one out of white oak. The leaves are scalloped and I used 1 inch rope type trim glued together to make the unique handle. It includes a drawer under the top. I stained it in Red Oak and used three coats of gloss polyurethane, sanding with 320 grit paper between coats. The front wheels were pre made by a local Amish man. This was my first real furniture project.
