I had been thinking about making a bar cart and I knew that my brother had a bunch of left-over hardwood oak and maple flooring in his barn. So I go to his house and as I am grabbing some maple flooring to make one cart, he mentions that there is a bunch of scrap metal in his dump trailer next to the garage. Soon I am digging through the metal and I find these two curious looking tractor cab frames. I am thinking that possibly these metal frames have potential to be my first bar cart and that the wood version might have to wait. So I bring the reclaimed metal frames to my shop.
I disassemble both cabs…
Once I figured out that I would have enough metal to make the legs and a top, I proceed with fabrication. About a week and a half of work my first reclaimed metal bar cart was completed.
Hope you like it as much as I do.
Two weeks and a bunch of saw-zall blades later… We perfected the dismantling of pallets so that we could use the whole Pallet and nothing but the whole pallet. We also learned which pallets not to use such as the Pallets marked MB for Methyl Bromide. A good rule of thumb is to not use any unstamped pallets as they may be poisonous. What you want to use are the ones marked HT(heat-treated)
The dimensions of the complete garden are roughly 35′ x 40′ x 35′ x 40′. The back wall is slightly reclined custom pallet seating for your viewing pleasure. The far wall and front wall are fence using existing pallets, and the near wall is made up of planters.
