About This Project

My husband and I built this counter height with specs of 351/2" high x 25" wide x 48" long. We are using it in our kitchen as a prep island.

Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Douglas fir
Finish Used: 
We made our own stain with vinegar and steel wool for the top and shelf, painted the body with Valspar Mermaid's Song. Poly over the stain to protect it from water and heat.

Really Great Build but I have questions

I think you guys did a wonderful job on the kitchen island. I like the fat legs and the 1x4 aprons. Did you consider adding a drawer since you have deep aprons? Is the top a butcher block or did you construct the top yourself? If you did build the top is it suitable for use as a cutting board?
