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.
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.
Brandon Lund yea man. He likes to film me to on my videos. And also be in them. Just fabricated a table for my fein slugger chop saw. Editing it now.
Thanks man. Best of luck. I’ll be watching. Check out some of my builds of you have time !
Thanks man I appreciate the sub and support. Good job on getting your son involved. He will always remember those father / son bonding times plus it gives them confidence that lasts later in life. Good on you brother!
It is a treasure to be able to pass on your knowledge to your children I am getting ready to do something similar to this with my oldest son skills are a treasure but moments and memories are far more treasure than just the skill I enjoy your videos great content
Hi Brandon i don't speak english very good but i need to know what is the chemical product to YouTube use in the iron , can you answer me in spanish please?, Thank you from Argentina and have a nice day....
@Brandon Lund thank you very much , i am learning speak english , and i saw you understand spanish ,
that's why I asked you answer me in spanish , just to see if my English was understood, i lke your works very much ...
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???
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.
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.
+Fototapete Thank you wery much and thanks for asking about the gear I use! Here is the link to my welding Jacket http://amzn.to/2Gr6TVl and here is the link to my welding apron http://amzn.to/2EjttPp I am very happy with the quality and fit.
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.
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.
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.
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 :)
