My daughter is in a wheelchair and regular counter and stove height are a problem for several reasons, cutting, cooking, etc… can actually be dangerous because they are so high. To deal with this, I made her this table that she can cut food – using a cutting board and an induction burner that she already has are at a functional height.
The front is 27 1/2 ” off the deck with casters that are adjustable in height for fine tuning to her needs, putting the table top at 29” – countertop height is 36”. The table top and legs are made of ash – wanted this to be strong enough to deal with weight and abuse. I used the removable metal corners for a couple of reasons – they allow the table to be broken down and put in the car – so she can take it home, and if it gets loose, it can be tightened.
Thanks for looking.
Added note – the casters are from Woodcraft – on sale this month – a little pricy but really nice.
Updated the pictures to add magnetic bars for knives and spice tins that are in easy reach.
