Fold up workshop

Materials: Bekvam kitchen cart

Description: I used the kitchen cart as the core of a fold up mobile woodshop or craft station. I also use the same cart for mobile tool stands after making the necessary modifications.

    Nice. Thinking of replicating this myself. two questions – what’s the thickness of the cart’s top butcher block (I want to get strong plywood in same thickness if possible for the long fold-down leaf) and secondly – what kind of hinge did you use on the leaf? Piano hinge or something more substantial?
