Our kitchen needed more work space. basically we have the L design. So we also had a lot of floor space.
this stand is all oak for the base with L shaped legs and hidden casters under the right end legs, just a half inch off the floor. to make the shelves work they are also an L design frame and glue and screwed to the legs. I just had trouble with the adjustable idea this time for the middle. the top stretchers are glue and screwed to the top of the legs and pocket screws to attach the top. Now the top used oak and cherry its 23 by 36. the legs are 3 inch each side and 30 inch high for a low work height more appropriate for chopping and work than a countertop 36 in. my wife is 5-3 so a low stand the height of a dining table was more suitable. I had lots of oak and its in 3 inch strips for the center and rock hard, 3 inch strip of cherry on each side of the oak for the top. I suggested to her to use cutting boards with the work stand. For the shelves I had some half inch oak flooring and cut it to fit and slipped the tongue and groove together..finally used a package I had for years..The top took 3 coats of cutting board oil and likely to get some more but it shines.
