Kitchen Cart

Was asked to put together 2 shelves for under kitchen window to hold cookbooks by a spatially challenged individual, (2 shelves will not fit under our kitchen windows). After mulling it over decided to build cart which would contain 2 book shelves and a work surface. The cart could be rolled over to the counter and provide for an additional work surface. I used a marble dough board for one half and created an end grain cutting surface on the other half. I like working with an open design – used red oak for cart and hard maple for cutting surface.

I like the pattern on the top of the table very nice, must be very handy to be able to move it around.

I have an old metal cart holding my books but this is inspiring. Love the multi-use of it. Never would have thought to put the marble on top. Love it

Very creative solution and nice looking project. This is what makes woodworking gratifying. You can’t go down to Walmart and buy one of these.

Great project!

Quite nice. I like the top. I can see some interesting uses for small left over pieces of wood.
