Railroad cart bench

A take off of an old railroad cart. I distressed the wood . The process I used was mark up the lumber, with a chain and screw driver. Gouge deeper markers with file and carving tool. Then spray paint edges and areas marked up. Quickly rub the stain on. Then whip off. After dry, sand it down to the finish you like.

Metal and casters were aged use black magic and antique patina from SCULPT NOUVEAU.

Stencil work us done with brass clamp stencils

Woods: ash

Tools: miter saw table saw belt sander metal chop saw drill press drill/driver japanese saw stencils
