I bought the following in a very raw kit form. The wheels were splintered in areas, and the flat metal work had been gouged severely when the fabricator did his pre shipping assembly using a crude box wrench. It's sat in my closet for nearly 6 years or so. Now with the birth of what will likely be our one and only grandchild, I decided to finish it as a keepsake for my daughter and 9 month old grandson.
Seeing now that it came with Amish utility wheels, and the obligatory kitchen cabinet door pull handles, I've seen fit to polish all the brightwork on a hi speed buffer; replacing all the original nuts, bolt, washers, etc. with polished stainless steel and solid brass. The gouging on the flat metal work took literally months to finish to a flat mirror finish. Working with what available light I had, I found it almost impossible to render photos that show this brilliance; but I know it's there, and that's what counts.
I'll attach an engraved brass plaque between the cheeks. At some point I may add lock chains, correct wheels, and proper implements as well as reverting it back to all black hardware, but I think I'm kidding myself. I don't have any real fabrication skills, and frankly I think it just pops the way it is. The ultimate unsolicited compliment came when my wife and daughter actually said it was gorgeous. If you're married, you know the significance of such a rating.
It'll most likely reside it's entire life as a fireplace ornament without ever being fired. I'm now the proud owner of a thunder mug from the Good Doctor Brown which I'll use for such momentous historic events as New Year's Eve and my grandson's first birthday.
