The beauty of Walnut and Hard maple…Not sure what it is about that combo makes me want to bite into it like pound cake. LOL

Everyone has different tastes, I like chocolate, however, we are definitely on the same page when it comes to liking the wood combinations utilized here. Very cool project and build. How are those gimpy looking castors holding up all the weight of this structure and enduring any chopping and pushing forces?

Actually, the castors aren’t as gimpy as they look. They are metal not plastic, though to do look sort of like plastic in the photo…Plus, the piece is weighted nicely. I don’t think the whole thing weighs more than about 30 pounds, though I haven’t thrown it on the scale. All in all, it’s got no wobble and is sturdy as hell. I drove four inch dowels into through the legs into the cutting board…so it’s got zero wobble, even on castors.
