Custom Project: The Mansfield Bar Cart

Custom Project: The Mansfield Bar Cart

Before we started Derek James Woodworking, Derek would build pieces for our family and friends. It's not uncommon for someone to see a piece we have built and request their own piece. That is exactly what happened with this project - our clients saw a rustic bar cart we built (to be featured in a later blog post) and requested one of their own. 

The Mansfield Bar Cart

Our client was looking for a light neutral color. We feel the white oak satisfied that while still adding character. In order to let the natural wood shine, we simply finished the piece with a clear coat - no stain required! 

The curved shape of this cart adds for a sleek and modern rustic look. We also added stylish black wheels on the bottom that add a fun detail and practicality.

The Mansfield Bar Cart butcher block top

We felt that the white oak butcher block top adds more interest than just your typical top. And the black details add a touch of rustic to this more modern design. We chose to add pipe handles to both sides. And the corner brackets tie it all together.

The Mansfield Bar Cart wine rack

But what would a bar cart be without wine storage? We added custom wine glass racks that hold the biggest wine glasses we could find. And we added a traditional wine bottle rack that mirrors the curved shape of the entire cart. 

We had so much fun building this modern rustic bar cart. If you are interested in a piece like this, fill out an inquiry form so we can talk more about what you are looking for. We would love to build a unique piece like this for your home.
