I'm making a painted hand cart that will be used at my son's wedding and then transferred to his garden. So needs to be suitable for outdoors. I envisage most of the structure will be sheet & boards around 18mm thick, apart from cart wheels, where I will need to do a bit of research.

I'm pretty much new to woodworking so guidance on suitable materials and finishes appreciated. Also construction details for replica cart wheels.

I know it is expensive but Oak would be a good choice

If using oak make sure that it is either European or English oak, american white oak won’t last as long.

other alternative timbers are sapele, utile or iroko.

What suppliers can I look at for the timbers suggested? I do have access to a bandsaw so can cut to thickness.

Depends where you live, I would never recommend having timber delivered as you won’t have any control over what you will receive.
