Kitchen cart with drop leaf extension
Materials: FÖRHÖJA kitchen cart, EKBY TRYGGVE 47 7/8X11″ shelf, three 1 1/2″ hinges, left and right hinge supports, scrap wood
Description: First the EKBY shelf was measured and cut to 39 3/8″ to match the cart length. The cart top and the shelf are different thicknesses so scrap wood was used under the hinges on the shelf to even the height.
Flip the cart over and attach the hinges near either end of the cart and shelf with the final hinge being placed in the center.
Left and right hinge supports were attached to the outside of the cart legs and the bottom of the shelf. Scrap wood was again used between the support and the shelf to even the height with the cart top.
