from the plans of others. I bought the tea wagon plans from Lee Valley as well as the wheels & castors on the same page as the plans. Problem encountered …. the castors are not compatible with the plans. Their design are for “through the shelf mounting” instead of mounting in the bottom of the rear legs. Being a dummy hobbyist, I did not cotton onto that until time to install the castors. After much diddling about I returned the castors to Lee Valley & then had to go shopping to try to source castors of the same height & compatible to the project. Came up empty so had to purchase shorter castors then turn extensions for the rear legs. This is about 6 years ago & I’m still enoyed by the extra work caused.
The species is walnut. The bottom shelf substrate is birch plywood & veneered with resawed walnut 1/8” thick.
