Have plans 'on the drawing board' for an A&C style,
roll-a-round-on-a-hardwood floor, utility cabinet in the kitchen.
Besides a couple of drawers and some shelf space, and if I know SWMBO as
well as I think I do, it will likely hold a medium microwave and 4 banger
toaster on the top.
I need to decide on the casters that are going to be used prior to
finalizing the dimensions.
Protecting the hardwood floor is of paramount importance.
The legs will likely be around 1 7/8" square. I would like a taper below the
bottom shelf to about a 1" footprint. It appears with the dimensions of the
casters I've seen thus far, that taper may be hard to get.
Didn't see anything at the BORG's that I would put on a portable diaper
pail. Just got the Lee Valley Hardware catalog and the only one that comes
close to what I had in mind is the Rubber-Wheel Caster #00A68.01 ... while
pricey, 1 1/4" mounting plate size, and not quite the look I was shooting
for, I am sure the quality is sufficient for the task.
Before I order them, any experience/comments with regard to furniture
quality casters that will work well on hardwood floors and fit the bill for
the above will be appreciated.
