My wife decided that she needed a rolling kitchen cart/island for her kitchen. Since she usually tolerates my idiosyncrasies fairly well, I decided it was in my best interests to try and make that happen. Bought a batch of quatersawn white oak 1×8’s and laminated them into a 24×36 x 3 inch top and the legs. Didn’t dawn on me how much surface area I was gluing up but didn’t take long to go through a 16 ounce bottle of wood glue. The top alone comes in at 73 pounds. 2 coats of hand wiped Verithane stain + poly with a quick sanding with 320 grit between coats.

Excellent job Buster. That pipe around it is tops. What a great idea. That cart is probably heavier than my workbench. LOL. Very well done buddy and one to be very proud of.
