Mahogany Carting Machine & 3 Drawer Cabinet

Quality, Built to Order by Delnero Custom Furniture Company

Hand Crafted quality Furniture in many styles, since 1963

Back in the mid 1980s a good friend I was in the Coast Guard with brought me some 8/4 thick pieces of scrape mahogany wood he got from the wood working shop he was working at. Just about the same time that Mike gave me this little pile of wood, my wife Mary was learning how to spin wool into yarn. She started off with hand carters which require a lot of strength to operate. We found a small company up in Northampton, Mass. that sold carting ma­chines, but they were all built of plywood. The folks at that little store were gracious enough to let me take dimensions off their machines when they heard I wanted to build my wife one myself.

This was one of the first times I worked with any wood other than pine, cherry, or oak. The entire machine was built by hand with the exception of the old handle taken off an old butter churn. Even the pillow blocks that hold high speed roller bearing were built of mahogany wood. The carter has 4 little feet that sit into the top of the 3 drawer cabinet. It can be lifted off and placed on a table to work the fleece. If you have an unusual request, we just might be able to custom build you a solution!
