  • (1x) Cruiser Table Pole Divider
  • (1x) Y Support

Cruiser Table Parts

Recommended Tools (Not Included)

  • Wrench
  • Deep Socket Wrench
  • Adjustable Pliers
  • Rubber Mallet

Step 1:

First unpack the cart to ensure you have received all of the parts. The wheels will have their corresponding nuts screwed on to them, and the base unit will have the bolts screwed into it. (If you haven’t received all the parts, please let us know by calling 1-800-827-8953 or contacting sales@nationaleventsupply.com). Once this has been confirmed you can start to assemble the cart.

Step 2:

Unscrew the nuts from each wheel. Then, one wheel at a time, stick the wheel bolt into the hole at one of the base cart corners and ratchet or wrench the nut onto the wheel bolt until it is on tight. Repeat for remaining wheels. Note that all of the wheels are identical so you do not need to worry about which wheel goes on the forward or back position of the cart.

Step 3:

Next to the cart base, attach the main handle and side supports together. The side supports attach to the main handle at the horizontal holes located just below the top of the handle.

Step 4:

Lift the main handle and side supports up together and attach them to the base cart. The flat divided platform at the back of the cart should be underneath the handle.

Podcast: Chef Corey Siegel on his time competing in the 2013 Bocuse d'Or

The Bocuse d’Or, often touted as the culinary equivalent of the Olympics, is the only culinary contest where live audiences can view the chefs performing work in the kitchen. 24 countries compete in this event with each team consisting of two chefs, one lead Chef and a Commis who must be under 22 years of age at the time of competition. The team has 5 hours 35 minutes to prepare two elaborate meat and fish dishes in an open culinary theatre facing members of the jury, press and audience. Dishes are evaluated based on the level of perfection in the plating, technical skill, cooking sophistication, creativity, and visual aesthetic. The chef with the highest score is awarded the Bocuse d’Or trophy, a gold effigy of Chef Paul Bocuse in his chef’s outfit and receiving a grand prize of 20,000 euros. Silver Bocuse receives 15,000 euros with the Bronze Bocuse winning 10,000 euros.

Chef Corey Spiegel is from Albany, NY and started his culinary career at the young age of 14. Since then he has become a decorated and awarded chef having won the Northeast Regional Student Chef of the year for the American Culinary Federation in 2010 and being hand selected by Chef Richard Rosendale to be his Commis for the Bocuse d’Or USA Finals (the stepping stone to the world Bocuse d’Or held biennially in France). In January 2013, Chef Rosendale with his Commis Chef Spiegel competed in the Bocuse d’Or in Lyon, France.

This fantastic podcast was recorded just weeks after Corey competed in the 2013 Bocuse d’Or in France for Team USA. Corey touches on his life getting to the Bocuse d’Or including his quick progression from high school, through culinary school to apprenticeship. After the years of prep work involved including plenty of full practice runs completing their whole program for the Bocuse d’Or, hearing Corey speak about the competition is eye opening. Though the podcast is decidedly Western New Yorkish – it’s produced by Buffaloeats.org and Buffalo Spree – it’s still an interesting podcast for Canadian chefs – especially those looking to learn more about the competitive culinary world. Listen to Corey and Donnie chat about this insane culinary contest experience, his training towards the contest and future plans.

New Cruiser Table Cart Now In Stock

We have 24”, 30” and 36” wood cruiser tables available which are an event staple and a must-purchase for party rental companies and event venues. The wood cruiser tables especially give a nice line when cloaked in a spandex linen and can be nicely accessorized with a sash cinched in the middle of the pole.

The drawback of this kind of cruiser table (versus the plastic folding cocktail table) is that there is more parts and more assembly required. Wood Cruiser tables consist of a round or square tabletop with a metal connector screwed in, a 28” or 40” pole, a base and cruiser table feet. For any company owning these tables, that’s a lot of pieces to keep track of. Especially a high-turnover rental company where inventory is going out the door all the time.

Introducing our new Cruiser Table Cart now in stock at our Mississauga Warehouse.

Cruiser Table Cart Full

Our Cruiser Table Cart fits 10-11 cruiser tables with connectors attached, 10-11 poles, and 10-11 bases in a dolly that is 53.25” l x 25” w x 78” h. Because of the size of the cart, going through a standard width door is not a problem making transportation a breeze. The cart can fit a variety of tabletop sizes so a party rental company is not limited to one specific size tabletop if a client wants 2 x 36” wood cruiser tables, 6 x 30” wood cruiser tables and 3 x 24” wood cruiser tables in one cart. Other cruiser table carts on the market come pre-assembled which can cause a higher shipping cost. Our Cruiser Table Cart will come knocked-down to save on shipping costs. To help avoid any frustrations, we will be publishing a blog post on how to assemble the cart in the very near future – so no guessing or Ikea assembly swearing is involved (we hope!). We’re really excited about this new inventory addition and hope it helps you all!

New Folding Bar Chair Cart Now in Stock

Our Folding Bar Chair is one of our most popular folding chairs and definitely a great seating option to accompany our plastic folding cocktail tables. Because of this, party rental companies and organizations who regularly exhibit at trade shows have been buying our folding bar chairs in droves. One of the biggest challenges for party rental companies in particular was the lack of a cart/dolly to properly transport these chairs.

I’m pleased to announce we now have a folding bar chair cart in stock in our Vancouver and Mississauga warehouses.

Full Folding Bar Chair Cart

With a width of 19.5” and length of 77”, this folding bar chair cart can fit through a standard width door with ease. The previous iteration of this bar chair cart had to be completely stocked to its maximum quantity of 18 chairs in order for the chairs to stay secure – if there was less than 18 chairs, the chairs would fall down and potentially fall out of the cart as well. This cart allows bar chair quantities of 4, 8, 10 or 20 chairs thanks to the removable and repositionable middle bar. The folding bar chairs are set up vertically instead of the chairs being laid horizontally and feature swiveling and locking wheels for maneuverability.
