Antique Factory Carts
In the last two years, in addition to my regular woodworking business, I have also been buying, selling and refinishing antique factory carts. I find them very useful in the shop for moving logs and lumber, but most people buy them to use as coffee tables. I have sold more than 100 in that time, and I currently have about 100 in the shop. Here are some of the carts I have refinished. All of these have been sold. Click on any photo to enlarge.
Hi Scott – loved your story regarding your affection for factory carts….
My cart affection/addiction is just beginning, and as an amature cabinetmaker, I have a vision for making a bed that looks like a factory cart.
(I missed a great opportunity a few years back to purchase multiple carts and I am really regretting it now).
I’ve been searching on-line for a set of cart hardware (seen a couple on ebay) and am getting ready to make a purchase. I did not see on your site that you sell just a hardware kit so I wanted to check in with you first before doing the ebay thing. Please advise. Thank you for your time. JDB
I do sell parts. Give me a call at 314-574-6036 and we can discuss the options.
I want a factory cart table, but I’m sure shipping to New Orleans would be out of my budget. Do you sell/ship complete hardware sets like the ones on your blog?
Shipping for a full cart or a set of hardware is about the same at around $100. I sell part sets for $150 and full carts for $250-$300.
Do you still have carts for sale? 678-974-9643 Patricia
I only have a few that I am selling locally. They aren’t in great shape and not worth the cost of shipping.
