I work for a small mountain community. We have an old rustic lodge with a great kitchen. The chef told me he needed a new stand for the small commercial mixer. Well, I just happened to have enough materials on hand to build just what he wanted. It was built with all recycled materials, painted with paint left over from who knows what and the face frame and drawer front was stained then sealed with two coats of Zinzzer amber shellac. The drawer front is some live edge slab that was around that I ran through the jointer and glued. Oh, I did buy the “new” casters.

Concern about the wheels and vibrations from the mixer while in use, however.
Any slant to the floor and this puppy is going to scoot around on its own. Yes… you should probably just pack this up and send it to me…

Personally, I like it better in the last picture… that is a beautiful grain movement and the drawer front completes the look, perfectly.

Thanks for shareing.
