INDUSTRIAL STYLE CART with vintage storage bin

4540 ratings | 274365 views
Building an industrial style cart with a vintage pull out storage bin wooden box. The wood top is from reclaimed pallet wood. In the episode, my daughter learns to mig weld for her very first time. You wont belive the results! CHECK OUT THE TOOLS & GEAR I USE 🔴 https://www.amazon.com/shop/brandonlund FOLLOW ME ON ⇨ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lunddiybuilds ⇨ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LundDIYBuilds Materials: 1 1/2" x 1/16" angle iron. Shelves are made from reclaimed pallet wood and finished in Olympic Mahogany Gel Stain. Vintage antique wood box was treated with Minwax Paste Wax only. The 12" drawer slides were sanded and sprayed with hammerite brown paint to blend into the color of the vintage wooden box. The metal cart was sanded with a 60 grit flap disc to remove all mill scale, followed by 150 grit sand paper. It was then brought to a bright finish with 220 grit paper, then cleaned with mineral spirits and the shelves and bare metal were all sprayed with clear satin enamel. The wood and top metal surface was then given an additional coat of Minwax Paste Wax for additional protection. The 3" wheel casters are non-maring sourced from Amazon.

I've just found some inspiration in your project for building my first welding cart. Thanks for sharing.
Brandon Lund (20 hours ago)
Ildefonso Girón I never thought about that, but that’s a great idea! It would look awesome as a welding cart! Cheers buddy!

Could of save yourself a lot of grinding pushing instead of pulling your weld
Brandon Lund (10 days ago)
The only exposed welds are the top corners and outside gusset plates. Everything else I wanted flush, so there was no way around not using a grinder. I personally havent found that pushing vs pulling produces any more or less deposited filler metal but pushing vs pulling has always been a hot topic in the industry anyways.

Collin Smith (3 months ago)
Wow...I just got my welding skills showed up by a teenage girl on her first try! Humbling. (Although, I would like to think beginners’ luck was involved somehow. Lol)
Ildefonso Girón (1 day ago)
Collin Smith Most likely she kind of inherited skills and talent from dad. Same as my daughter who cooks as good as my mother did. Best regards.
Brandon Lund (3 months ago)
LOL there was a little beginners luck but I think she might be a natural. Cheers brother and thanks for the compliment!

Like your daughter did a lot of the welding that was very cool
Brandon Lund (9 months ago)
Thank you! I'm very proud of her
Daniel Alamo (9 months ago)
I have a question. It looks like you mounted the casters solid, not adjustable. If so, why? I have built things before according to the tape measure and square everything is correct, plumb, square and true, yet the project wobbles. Floors are always not level. Especially concrete and tile. Any suggestions???
Brandon Lund (9 months ago)
With fixed feet I probably would have made them adjustable, but where as this cart is made to be mobile, it will never be sitting in the same place, so if it's uneven you can always move in an inch or two either way until there is no wobble. The casters are fairly soft also which gives a little forgiveness.

Hey Brandon, what are those pins you're welding on the corner plates and where do you buy them?
Brandon Lund (11 months ago)
Daniel Balfour they are steel rivets. The contact where I was getting them from is no longer carrying them. Contact this guy, he will hook you up! http://www.blacksmithbolt.com/

Your use of reclaimed wood is genius and I love the end result. I need a good cart for my powerarc welder. I just might add a bit of wood.

Brandon Lund (11 months ago)
Thank you very much. She did way better than I when I first learned to weld.
Mtl Hed (11 months ago)
Hey man, awesome job! Just wondering what kind of spray paint you used on the metal at the end. Is that just a clearcoat?
Mtl Hed (11 months ago)
Brandon Lund thanks for the information! I've been using flat black on my projects like this and they come out a little to clean. I'm going to try your clear coat method on my next metal project
Brandon Lund (11 months ago)
Yes. This was the first time I tried using clear on bare metal. It's holding up great. Just make sure you get the metal spotless before you apply it and you shouldn't have any problems. I used mineral spirits then after that wiped it down with rubbing alcohol.
Aidan Wilson (1 year ago)
I should teach my daughter how to use our everlast welder so that she can help me out with projects. Great work on the cart and I love how you used the reclaimed wood.

Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Brad Amaral thank you! The pieces you are asking about are called steel rivets. The company where i purcased them does not stock them anymore.. EBay has a good selection though
eXampL (1 year ago)
well she can weld better than me lol
Dennis Young (10 months ago)
Note: women often have better fine motor control than men - which means they often are *better* welders (and other activities where fine motor control is important).

Crazy Model Garage (1 year ago)
very good result! i liked it. what did you spray in the metal?
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Crazy Model Garage Thank you! I sprayed on 2 coats of satin clear. This was first time trying that process and it has held up really well without chipping. I normally wipe on 2 coats of Minwax paste wax if I plan to leave the metal bare but I wanted to try something different.

Dustin Meier (1 year ago)
Parenting done right. The world needs more female welders, women naturally pay more attention to detail than men, and thus produce better quality projects when properly trained and allowed artistic freedom.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
Dustin Meier Thank you very much Dustin! I completely agree. Women have more patients than men too (usually)

cableup1 (1 year ago)
I'm past dad / daughter and into grandpa / grandson. Wonderful place you two are at and getting your teenager involved, fantastic (and sometimes challenging). Couple things to consider for future similar projects. 1. Mechanically attach the mechanical components. Casters and drawer slides can fail. 2. Slat shelves- place 1/8 x1 flat bar on it's side and weld in place between the slats. It looks good, no glue and it's load bearing.
Brandon Lund (1 year ago)
cableup1 I love it! All excellent points. My son is using this in his college dorm to hold his microwave. He stored it over the summer on campus. Not sure how it happened but one wheel got bent a little. I see your point :)
