    Can someone help me determine the best material to use to make a stone top kitchen cart? I am not sure if I will be painting it white to match my cabinets or staining it dark to contrast, but I want to make sure that I use the right material that will hold up to being rolled around and the 30-40 lb granite slab I will be topping it with. I am a relatively new woodworker and this will be the biggest/most finished project I have undertaken. Thanks!

      Hi Jan. Any common cabinetmaking material will hold up fine with a 40 pound weight on top of it. Plywood, solid wood, MDF would all be good options.
      Thanks
