Great Job. Love the color. Nice square lines. Tell me, where did you get the caster wheels at?

Thanks so much! After a ton

Thanks so much! After a ton of searching, I found the wheels at Wholesale Tool Company- wwtool.com. I ended up spray painting the casters with Rustoleum oil rubbed bronze because they didn't match the wheels for some reason, but it was definitely worth it.

Thanks for the compliment! I found the wheels at Wholesale Tool Company- wwtool.com. It was the only place I found some antique-looking ones that weren't insanely expensive.

Thanks so much for the compliments! I searched and searched for antique-looking caster wheels and finally found some that weren't insanely priced from Wholesale Tool Company- wwtool.com. I had to pay a little extra for shipping since they're really heavy, but it was definitely worth it. I also ended up spray painting the casters with Rustoleum oil rubbed bronze because they were a different color than the wheels for some reason.

factory cart coffee table

I LOVE this table you made!! I seen it on the HGTV website and am wondering how big the wheels are for this? Been on the Wholesale Tool Co. website, but dont have a clue what to look for.The wheels make the whole table come together and want my husband to make this for our great room. Could you please advise me on this project? I think it will make a wonderful conversation piece! Thanks so much! I am enjoying your website on the many talents you have!

Thank you! The wheels I used

Thank you! The wheels I used were 6". Here's the link for the ones I bought- http://www.wttool.com/index/page/product/product_id/15467/category_id/16...

I also found a coupon code online to make them even cheaper. This site has some other nice wheels too, if you just search for caster wheels. Hope this helps!

I found some nice wheels for the factory cart table I made at Harbor Freight. They were 6" casters with the old-timey metal spokes, but with rubber wheels. I spray painted the steel parts black and they look great.

Price??

The table looks amazing and I have decided to make this my summer project (maybe even sooner). How much did it cost, including all materials and the rustoleum oil?
