DIY Kitchen Island

Submitted by CustomPulp on Wed, 08/30/2017 - 12:16

Island dimensions Bar 36" deep x 50" wide, counter top height and base has 24 inch depth. I was lucky enough to have the walnut donated for the project which I cut into 1" stips and glued together butcher block style. Also put a 1 1/4" band of walnut around countertop for appearances and to help strengthen the top. The base was made with pine and painted turqoise. The double waste basket was another touch I added. Thanks for looking.

Estimated Cost
base with lumber, door hardware, double trashcan hardware, corbels, paint $250.00. Pricing the Walnut if not donated, would have added another $300.00 to the cost of the project.
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Pine base, Pine Doors, Pine Panels, Walnut top
Finish Used
tung oil on top. Lowes Satin finish Valspar for the base
