Found plans for this on “New Yankee” website. I didn’t have a drill press when I built the wooden wheels and was unable to align all of the spoke holes properly, so I purchased the wheels you see here. Also, I don’t have a lathe so I purchased a walnut dowel for the handle. The remainder of the wood was milled from 8/4 mahogany. Tray sides are mitered and joined with FF biscuits. Slats float in dado slots. Legs and removable tray ends were shaped on the band saw and fined tuned on a spindle sander. Finished with 3 coats of “natural” stain and 2 coats of spar urethane. This was my second project and a bit complicated for a newbie, but I learned a lot as I erred my way through.
