The Lineberry Cart: A Piece of Americana is Finished by Waterlox

A true piece of Americana, the Lineberry factory cart is considered an authentic antique in most circles. The carts, originally manufactured by the Lineberry Foundry and Machine Company in the early 1900’s in North Carolina, were widely used in factories.

Often called railroad carts, Lineberry carts were originally used in railroad depots for transporting trunks, and were later used in furniture factories for moving large pieces from one specialist artisan to the next. Waterlox customer Steve K. decided to rebuild and restore a Lineberry factory cart, using Waterlox to complete the finishing. To read the entire story, click here!
According the Steve, the finished product is incredible - as you can see from the photos!
“Most of what I did was all original,” he said. “The wood is all new white oak finished with 5 coats of Waterlox Original Sealer/Finish.” The cart was rebuilt and finished in central Texas where Steve enjoys working with Waterlox as part of his woodworking projects!
