Finish Cart Fill in all nail and screw holes (the larger, countersunk holes with dowels), sand all wood surfaces, and rub the cart down with tung oil (Image 1). Finish the cart by running a silicone bead between the cart surface and the 2×2 wood that is picture framing it (Image 2).

Step One // How to Make a Hardworking Kitchen Cart Overview to Make a Hardworking Kitchen Cart Photo by Mark Lund Lyndsey looked at the aluminum tubes and fittings poking up from the box of parts in her #DIYDARE kit and fist-bumped Nate. “Whatever we do, it’s gonna be like building with Tinkertoys,” she said. “But what should it be?” The stainless-steel color and a nearby workbench top made it click. “A rolling island,” Lyndsey said. They cut the aluminum tubes to length and joined them with fittings and a hex key. With the frame built, they added slats below for bulk storage, the beefy maple work surface above, and an overhead rack to keep frequently used pans handy. Standing back and admiring their work, Nate said, “Not bad for the kitchen, but those wheels mean we can roll it right outside for backyard-cocktail time!” An idea they’ll clearly drink to.

Step Two // How to Make a Hardworking Kitchen Cart Cut the Parts Photo by Mark Lund Determine the height, width, and length of the cart. We designed ours around a 2-by-4-foot workbench top. Fit a miter saw with a nonferrous metal cutting blade, or use a hacksaw, to trim the aluminum tubes to length.

Step Four // How to Make a Hardworking Kitchen Cart Add the Top Photo by Mark Lund Using tee fittings, add the pair of aluminum tubes that will support the rack above one end of the cart. Space the tabs evenly to support the top and the shelf from underneath, and secure them with the hex key. Use screws to attach runners to the bottom tabs, then add strips of oak to the runners to make a slat shelf. Drill pilot holes to join the pieces with wood screws. Drop the top in place and fasten it the same way. Add the casters and tighten the setscrews as before.

Author Notes: Hi everyone, Jen here today! This is a fun simple project with big impact! I love the mix of wood and metal. Oh did I mention it only took 2 hours from start to finish, one board, one stick of “angle aluminum” and some screws! Well, it actually goes finish first on this one!  The first step was to cut down my 2 x 12 into 3 pieces at 31 1/2” (so I could get three shelves out of one 8 foot long board). I gave them a good sanding and stained them. I used Carrington by RustOleum – it’s got a slight reddish tint, very pretty! Now for the aluminum angle.  You can find it at most any hardware store, and it’s pretty inexpensive – Aluminum angle comes in precut sizes, but mine were 48″ in length, so I decided to cut them in half.   The best way I’ve found to cut aluminum angle is with a jigsaw with a metal blade. Just clamp the aluminum angle down, And it cuts like butter! Even easier than cutting wood! Then it was time add the aluminum angle to the boards.  I set my 3 boards on their side on a couple sawhorses, set the first aluminum piece flush with the top and bottom board.  Then I predrilled through just the aluminum where I wanted to place my self tapping screws,  One on each side of the angle piece.  I did the top board first and then the bottom.  I measured and marked the middle of the angle piece and set the center of the middle 2 x 12 board and did the same, predrilled and sunk my self tapping screws. I did the same for all four sides. Almost done. Then I just needed to add these sweet casters! I used 1 1/4” self tapping screws here. I flipped it up and stood back to admire.  AMAZING! It’s really is amazing what 2 hours and few materials can make!  Would look amazing in the kitchen as a baking cart, Or if your kiddos are heading back to school, a great place to store art and school supplies that will easily wheel into a closet or bedroom. Now it’s your turn, just do it!
