Kitchen Island on Wheels

This was for a repeat customer of mine that wanted an island that was mobile. I built it with a toe kick drawer to regain space that would have been lost where the wheels were. The piece is made of red oak and the finish is minwax puritan pine stain with medium rubbed effect lacquer sprayed through an HVLP gun.

Ooh, this one intrigues me. Seeking to to something similar for the kitchen – a nearly wide enough galley kitchen, that would benefit from an island (or penninsula) but best if it’s mobile. to facilitate prep and later, party-flow.

does it move much, or is it okay to (unknowingly) lean against without it skittering away?

I used 5” rubber wheels. It’s pretty heavy and moves well but needs a little muscle to get it rolling.

I have a design sitting on my desk as I look at your completed work.
The date on it is Feb/04/2007.
Not that I work at a snails pace or anything.
I can’t let my wife see this !!!

Very nice result .
I have run out of excuses now .
