Sturdy Kitchen Cart
Don’t let its size fool you, there’s a lot of style and functionality packed into this cart. It’ll be a sturdy and handsome ally in any kitchen.
In a small kitchen, this cart could easily act as an island. In a larger environment, it can be just as happy to serve as a faithful sidekick to a permanent island. It’s a butcher block, a veggie prep table, and a storage unit all combined. Plus, it’s on wheels. Wheels that you’ll make, as well. In fact, most of this cart is shop-made. (Hinges, bushings and a handful of screws are all that’s on the hardware list.) A light hardware bill is always a good thing. But wait, there’s more. It’s good looking from all sides. This is due to the designer’s efforts and intention of keeping the cart as versatile as possible. I think he deserves high marks for the results. The mitered edges on the oak case and flush rabbeted back of the same material provide visual love from all angles. The maple top and wheels provide a nice contrast. The V-grooves in the doors give a little energy to the look of the cart. Having finger holes instead of knobs or pulls in the doors to access the inside was more than a cosmetic decision. It means that you can move the cart around without fears of snagging or scratching anything it might brush by. This project is fun from start to finish.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
