This is a Maple and Walnut serving cart that I recently finished. It has casters for mobility, storage for 4 bottles of wine and an inlaid ceramic tile for cutting bread or cheeze. The wine glass rack holds up to 8 glasses upside down between the wine bottles. The alternating maple and walnut strips were glued together with Tightbond III but no biscuits or dowels. The rails are standard copper plumbing pipe sprayed with clear laquer so they don’t tarnish. The finish is polyeurethane to stand up to the weather. Dimensions are about 30”H X 32”L X 15”W.
