Dark and Stormy

Dark and stormy! This is the original Oak top, with a coffee dark stain. The rough texture, cracks, nicks, scratches, and residue tell the life story of this hard working cart. The completely authentic Lineberry stencil is very dark on both sides of the frame, standing out loud and clear. The cast iron hardware, all polished, was cast with the part numbers in relief. Dimensions: 27 x 48 x 16.5 See more details at

Be my Honey Bee

The markings of industrial history are all over this cart. The authentic Lineberry stencil, extremely dark and sharp, can be seen on both sides of the frame, plus, as part of a factory transfer, the working carts were all numbered - this one was labeled NC567. The eye-catching top still has the yellow and burgundy paint from the factory in stripes on alternating boards, along with the cracks, chips, and marks that recall its' long life. The large side wheels have the part number / Lineberry name in relief on the cast iron. The hardware has been polished. Measures 27 x 48 x 16.

Dining Room Plant - Interesting stencils

This new coffee table, just out of the shop, was made from a Lineberry furniture factory cart with the (whatever you like to call them) Fleur, Floral, Daisy-style wheels.  The wood grain on the original oak top gives it a rich texture, and this cart was clearly used in the division of the furniture factory which specialized in dining room items.  How fun is this?

A customized cart coffee table

This table is well and truly one-of-a-kind. Customized from cast iron parts and antique wood taken from other carts, this is a beautiful example of a craftsman's creativity. The four large wheels were cast by the Charles Francis company, but the frame is another style. The cast iron hardware, including the corner brackets, are polished. The spectacular wood top is made from reclaimed American Chestnut barn siding. The wood top measures 26 x 48 1/4, and the cart stands 16 inches tall.

Good ol' Chas Francis

Dark Walnut Stain and an unusual Lineberry cast iron casting

 Dark Walnut Stain Lineberry Foundry Cart

Tall, dark, and handsome, where have you been all my life? There are so many spectacular details to this cart, where to begin? The dark walnut stain on the vintage Oak wood, together with the polish and seal on the cast iron hardware transforms this cart into an elegant, vintage industrial art piece. The extra large lettering cast into the large iron wheels is a rare detail: In an oversize font, it reads: 'THE FOUNDRY' - 'N. WILKESBORO N.C.' This table is truly exceptional.

 Spalted Maple Cart Table

 Antique furniture factory cart coffee table
Lineberry warehouse cart was likely given a new top in a factory, using the wood that was on hand for the furniture. It appears to be a spalted maple, with beautiful character, resulting in an appearance not unlike quarter-sawn wood. The grain and pattern give the top a beautiful texture. See more images and more details at

Shabby chic authentic antique railroad cart

We've softened the edges on the original antique Oak top of this table. These images show the variation of color in the original red oak, depending on the light and reflection. The wood has a light reddish hue, but not overwhelming color. The original Lineberry stencil is very faint on one side, and not visible on the other. Shabby-chic white paint is still visible on the sides and top. The hardware, with part numbers and brand name in the casting, has been painted. This cart measures the standard 27 in x 48 in x 16 in.
