I made this maple kitchen cart for my wife. The cabinet doors match the kitchen cabinets in our house. The top is a nice thick cutting board using a combination of oak and maple. The wheels work well and my wife can move it all over the kitchen. I built a handle for it. The knobs match our kitchen cabinet knobs as well. Inside the cabinet are two shelves with a 1.5-inch lip to help hold the contents on the shelf as the cart moves around. My wife keeps a bunch of stuff in the cabinets, so the lip is important to note. The bottom of the cart also acts as a shelf. Amazingly enough, it looks like it belongs in the kitchen with the rest of the cabinets.

Great idea! It’s big enough to be useful, but small enough to tuck in a corner when not in use.

This is a nice little cart and it looks like you have nice wheels on it. too. Looks like a good, tight build. Hopefully you will not paint this project. It looks great. bbqKing

That is cool. I like the idea of a cutting board for a top. Nice work.
