Rolling Wooden Bar Cart

Chris requested a bar cart and had specific requirements in mind. I was able to come up with a design that met all his needs and then some. Up-cycling the leaded glass doors from an antique entertainment center and the bollards from an old organ I was able to provide a few extras while keeping within his budget.
The frame is made of quarter-sawn white oak with a 17 in. Sapele & Maple Veneer Chess Board and African Mahogany inlay to compliment the playing field top.
Both sides of the interior is lit up with three flashlight bulbs connected to a hidden battery-pack and switch that is easily accessible. The lights even shine through to the wine bottle and stemware racks on the side!
Awesome project!

    Mark does very good work at a reasonable price and can deliver on time. The piece he did for me looks very nice and I am pretty pleased with it. I can recommend him to others – but I will add one caveat: make sure you are clear upfront with your specifications and communicate frequently during the design and production process. Because in my original RFP I stated (sort of offhandedly I suppose) that I wanted a bar cart that could accommodate standard off-the-shelf wine glass stems (the more economical ones made by Libbey and such, etc.). Unfortunately, that spec was not met due to a communication error. In the grand scheme of things it’s a relatively minor thing and it does not take away from the look of the work, which is pristine. But it would have been a nice-to-have. So the bottom line is: Mark is a very talented craftsman who delivers well-made and elegant pieces but be sure to state your specifications very specifically upfront.
