Convertible Bar Cart
Roll this up to the entertainment location of your choice. Pop off the top tray to reveal a very large cutting board or additional serving area. Easily lift out both trays to triple your working surface. Instantly transform your bar cart into a full blown bar! This cart will definitely be the guest of honor at your next party.
The frame is made of Walnut. The legs, and cross bars are joined by Poplar dowels accented with protruding brass plugs. The handle is a solid brass rod that doubles as a towel rack. The frame rides on solid brass casters. The cutting board is mounted with furniture bolts for easy removal in case refinishing or resurfacing is needed in the future. The trays are made from Walnut and Curly Maple. They have a pinstripe bottom, trapezoidal handles, and hand cut, half blind dovetails for a secure and stylish joint. The bottom tray has a positive register with blocks on the lower cross bars to hold it snuggly in place and give the illusion it is floating away from the frame. The top tray hides the cutting board with perfect fit to prevent any movement when mixing cocktails. Again this tray is mounted to give the illusion it is floating above the frame.
