Kitchen Island
About This Project

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

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
The entire project cost $47.00.
Estimated Time Investment: 
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Pine
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.

I love this! Could you tell

I love this! Could you tell me the size of the kitchen it went in?

Kitchen Island

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

My kitchen is 12 x 12 and I always thought it was too small for an island. This will work perfect! I love your colors too. Thanks!

Shelving support

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!

I would think it would be basically the same build, just add brackets to support the extra wood.

Small Kitchen Island!

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!

Kitchen island

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.

Love!

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!
