This is a project that's been on the back burner a while (like most of 'em). While I've had my Crankandstein 3 roller mill motorized for over a year now, it's been a pretty crude setup: all mounted to plywood that I'd setup on sawhorses when needed. Figured it was time to work on a dedicated cart for it.
Here's the older thread that leads up to this one:
The structural elements of the cart are complete. Over the next few days it will be lots of sanding, stain, & polyurethane. Then I'll move on to installing the casters, motor, gearbox, and mill. Will post more pics as I go.
Thanks, Razzbarlow. I was actually too lazy to set up the router table for this. All the notches for the joinery were done with a skil saw, hammer & chisel. The edge work on the slats was done with a belt sander.
I can't wait to get this done, and move into the new house next month, where I'll have a garage with dedicated brew space. A brew stand build is next!
I put off nailing in these floor slats until after the staining was done. I was worried that I'd have trouble brushing the stain into the narrow gaps between the boards. After filling the nail holes with colored putty, I'm ready to move on to applying the poly.
