I had blue cut birch plywood for me so I could get it home in my car. I sanded it really well, using several grades of sandpaper, I stained it with kona colored stain and put it together very easily. The only trouble I had was when my daughter and I brought it from the garage into the house because it's big, awkward and heavy. Thanks to TDC for posting these plans. Get building...you won't be sorry.
$120.00 for screws, wood and stain.
15-20 hours? I'm not sure, I work on stuff when I can...and I'm slow and my garage is very disorganized which slows me down even more.
birch plywood - 2 sheets
kona stain - it's really dark - love it
We had been wanting a bar cart for a while, but didn't want to spend the money on a nice one. This was our first more complicated project. We had to adjust the plans a bit to fit in our in our teeny tiny rowhouse. Thank you for posting these plans!
$200 (including wheels)
This took us a few about two months working off and on.
We adjusted the dimensions because of how narrow our house is. We also didn't use a kreg jig, and used brackets and regular wood screws instead.
The most difficult part of the project was finding drawers and wheels. Since we adjusted the size, the openings for our drawers were very nonstandard. We had to end up making our own out of hardware cloth. It was also hard to find reasonably priced wheels. We ended up using Singer sewing machine pulleys from Ebay.
