This is my very first woodworking project. I completed it at my brother-in-law’s house using his table saw, circular saw, and router. Since this photo was taken, I added hardware to the drawer pulls and seasoned the butcher block top.
The top is 31 cuts of whitewood, the base is whitewood, and some birch plywood. I realize a butcher block top should be made of harder wood, but for starters this was a fun project and this island cart looks great in my house.
I purchased the plans for the island cart online. Search U-Bild Kitchen Island and you should be able to find them fairly quickly. I also bought the hardware package that was optional and it worked out great.
The entire project took about 6 weeks to complete with me going over to my brother-in-law’s house on most Saturdays and Sundays, and doing very little work on it during the week (if any).
