Industrial Cart Coffee Table

I've been fortunate through some misfortune. Having been out of work for some time, I began doing some things I love....wood working and small construction projects. My wife loves the old industrial carts people buy to use as coffee tables. At $300 for a vintage cart, I decided I could build one. I used 8" metal industrial wheels and metal corner brackets. These were all painted with satin black paint. My cart measures about 48" X 32". I assembled the deck with 4 2" X 8" and then the rails with 4 2" X 6". There are 2 2" X 4"s under each end, which the wheels are mounted to. I finished the cart in a dark walnut with a couple of coats of polyurethane. I assembled the wood pieces using pocket holes with pocket hole screws.

You probably couldn't have bought one any more beautiful than this. The Mrs. must be very excited about her new cart table. Did you create your plan from scratch?

Actually, I found the plans on rogueengineer.com. He has several nice plans there. I did modify the size of the table a little to fit my needs and changed the screw patterns on the deck boards. Also, the wheels referenced on the site are no longer available, but I found mine on northerntools.com. I had to take the wheels apart and paint them black, but it wasn't a big deal. Thanks for the comments!
