About This Project

Pine

The plans were easy to follow. I modified my island to fit my space and cut it down to 44 inches in length.

Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Estimated Time Investment: 
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Finish Used: 
I stained the top and shelves with Watco Danish Oil in dark walnut and then used a satin finish varathane for only the top to protect it from spills, etc. The sides and legs were painted with an interior latex paint called "Sandbar" from Home Hardware.
Estimated Cost: 
The entire project cost $47.00.

Thank you for your kind comment. The size of the area that this island went in is approximately 10ft. x 12ft, but you can modify this plan to whatever size you need. Hope this helps you. Lesa

Your island is gorgeous, and I love the modification you made to the original plans on the shelving support! I would like to know what size the boards are that you used so that I can duplicate. Thank you!

This is great! ANyone know how I could extend one side in order to put stools for an eating area?
Would love to do that!

I want to make this Kitchen Island but if can't find the Supply List. Would you mind posting it or emailing me please! This will work perfect in my Kitchen

Wow! Just a wonderfully simple project! I can figure it out by looking at it. I have a piece of Rock Maple Counter Top 24"x6'that needs legs. I'll probably use 4x4' for legs, six of them. But the shelves will be just like this. Thank you!

Yours looks so different and so much better then the one that show how to make it, how did you do it? I really would love to build it but have no idea how...
Thanks so much!

This island is perfect. I love the shelves and the size. Any chance you could send me the dimensions of this island and details on how you did the shelves? Great job!

This is a great project!I've recently moved in a new house and I built this kitchen island that looks great.Besides making my kitchen look modern it is also very useful in order to storage the forks and knives that I bought from the Oregon Knife Shop.

I'm SO glad I stumbled acrossed your website! I LOVE that island and getting ready to get all the stuff to make it. Did you use the Kreg Jig thing the original person used...? If not, how did you cover the screw heads?

Thanks!
