I have a client who’s wife didn’t like picking up her big mixer and moving it on the counter. It was very heavy and cumbersome for her. She said she wanted a “rolling cutting board” out of oak that would be able to hold up and slide the mixer on top of the counter.
I told her husband I’d cook something up and laminated up a few pieces of quartersawn oak to make a cutting board and then I put some good ol’ shop casters to the trick. Most people use these for roller tables for their workpieces. I just mortised them in to make it lower profile and they work great. The piece is 12”x18” and 1” thick.
