This tiny cart was made for the coworker of a friend. This poor lady was so short that she needed a step stool just to make dinner using her existing counters. The whole cart finished at 26” if I remember correctly.

Poplar frame work covered in red milk paint from general finishes, then clear lacquer on the maple slats and some manner of butch block/ salad bowl type coating on the top. The top was actually salvaged from the local tech school—I guess that it was once a top in a science lab.

Very nice project, I really like the colours combination.

Now the newbie question: How do you attach the top to the table structure?

Awesome Cart, I understand this was made for the short lady….. This would make for one heck of a tool cart as well, the design of it that is….. Nie color contrast. I bet she loved it….
