  • Indiana Walnut, Tennessee Hard Maple, Baltic Birch ply
  • 1” thick hard maple cutting board top attached with hardware in a slot to accommodate expansions cross-grain
  • 6” deep drawer, half blind dovetailed, reversible (in case you like the wheels on the other side), blocks on open or close, lifts to remove
  • Adjustable middle shelf is Baltic birch ply trimmed in maple
  • Sliding dovetail front/rear rails with pocket hole screwed support beam
  • Half lap, doweled side rails
  • Wood wheels and adjustable feet for leveling
  • Food safe finishes (Howard Butcher Block for top, shellac elsewhere)
  • Utensil or pan or towel hooks (three under top on each side rail)

Very nice. I’m a little older (67), but willing to be adopted (and kept far away if you prefer).

That’s a wonderful cart. I’m really intrigued with that leg joinery. It looks outstanding.
