Thumbs up Re: Surface for preparing Dough?

Hi Kris,
thought about making up a canter levered bracket off the rear of your marble top to hold some bain marie dishes? I purchased some dishes off ebay, made up 2 stands, the rear one higher than the front one and hold the next deeper sized trays and more ingredients, which makes it so easy to see, hold and organise for those all important pizza feasts. Each row also has room for a half width tray or I can replace some trays with half width ones as it it all modular. All trays have lids which get discarded in the rush and used once everyone has their fill. I tend to have the less used ingredients, eg seafood -sliced prawns, calamari, smoked salmon, mussels, etc, avocado, dried tomatoes, onion slices, etc in the front ones, with all the ham, chicken, sliced processed meats etc in the deeper rear trays. I also have larger trays that lay across the front on the hardwood bench top with the 2 cheeses that we like, motzarella and tasty cheese. It works surprisingly well, easy to set up, to access and to clean up.
They are cheap, plentiful and the bases easily folded up and tack welded or can be riveted or bolted together.

Cheers.

Neill

Neill- That's a good idea too! I never thought of it. The only thing that comes to my mind is the balance of the cart. The weight of everything hanging off one of the sides might tip the cart over. It is not a big cart ( 28"X 20" ). I am thinking of maybe using the draw. Put the toppings in the draw if they will fit. It is not a deep draw (2 3/8"). I am thinking of something like ramekins with a height that will fit in the draw.Thanks for helping me! - Kris

Kris,
another option is to make/have fabricated a tray that lays over the top edge of the marble top with cut outs that fit the selection of trays as per layout attached. Stainless bent into angles would be best as it would retain maximum strength and straightness. I have drawn the illustrations to scale, ie a 20 x 28" with the correct sized trays. You would need to get your trays first and then make the tray to suit.

Cheers.

Neill

Hi Kris,
attached is a plan for the stainless top as proposed, if you decide to use the trays then by turning them around, you will get 6 along the back or as the original plan 5 + 1/2.
I did an ebay search for the trays in the US and only found ONE at $36 each, wow what a rip off. Did a search in ebay.com.au and got 187 with a whole range of trays, lids etc. and 6 new 1/2 trays for $34.00 plus postage!
Shop around, there was 64 varying sized trays in polycarbonate for $150 but you could easily sell the not required ones for a healthy profit and get your for free!!!!

Cheers.

Neill

Neill- I appreciate everything you have done for me. For the interim till I get something made I have found these stainless steel pans 7"x6"x2.5" for $3 each that fit in the draw. I can get started with them. Have a look. - Kris

Great stuff, at least you are up and away.
Maybe a little later, you will feel the need to have more selection and the options are always there!

Cheers.

Kris, perfect fit. As the drawer is stainless you could put some ice in the drawer under the pans.you might need to seal up the corners with some silastic. Many pizzerias use a drawer under their bench to keep the dough balls.
