our Hints, Tips and Recommendations!
Pay close attention to the "Project Notes" included with this build kitchen cart plan! They are VERY helpful!
When we first looked at this plan, we thought we would like to have more of the storage space enclosed. This would be especially true if you plan to move it from location to location often.
Another option would be to put a drawer in one or more of the slots. A drawer or two could also be a later addition - after you have had more practice. (If you would like to learn how to make drawers, visit our "How To Build Drawers" page.)
Another option would be to create a solid bottom shelf, but that could detract from the character of the piece.
OR, you could build it according to the plan!
However you decide to build it, the purchase price of $7 is well worth it.
