Kitchen Island #1: Without doors

03-19-2012 02:32 PM by Dpetty | 0 comments »

So im slowly getting into woodworking. Its something i have done to a small extent all my life, thanks to my dad who has always been pro in my eyes. Anyway, this is the first large project i have ever undertaken on my own. I decided to build it for my wife for valentines since we have almost NO counter space in our house… We moved in to an older home about a year ago and although the kithen is fairly large, there was no place for her to prepare meals and so forth. I got the plans on...

Distressed Pine Island/Table #1: I seriously took a flying knot to the head

02-18-2012 01:58 AM by AmandasHusband | 4 comments »

The mother-in-law has been nagging me to build this “table” for about a year. The problem is, she wants something different every time I talk to her about it. She’s settled on 79”x30” at about 38” tall. She wants square legs, 3 sides enclosed, and two shelves. Oh, and she wants it made out of knotty pine to look distressed. So I started it last weekend. Went to Home Depot for some 2×6’s and 2×4’s. Then i glued then squared up ...

Projects #3: Kitchen Island

09-21-2009 05:54 AM by NedB | 8 comments »

Buddy of mine gave me a chunk of bowling alley earlier this year. I was going to make Something out of it, and my wife asked if I would make a rolling kitchen island to replace our kitchen table. It needed a little cleanup on the ends, and I lucked out, only barely nicking this nail with a router bit. The plan is for it to be counter height: I decided to do a decorative treatment on the ends of the rails, somewhat ‘greene and greene’ influenced, but just out o...

The Non-Electric Chair #3: The Island

08-13-2008 10:57 AM by lethentymill | 1 comment »

The “Island” is the land that accompanies Lethenty Mill. It stretches from its widest part at the Mill to its narrowest about half a mile up the Lochter Burn. It used to be very important to the Mill; water was collected in a long narrow channel leading to a dam near the Mill, and it could be released into a variety of channels under and around the Mill which were arranged to feed the water to the two water wheels or back into the water course (the Lochter) if the system was full and li...

Sandbar #6: Pictures!

06-16-2008 04:30 AM by Sparky977 | 7 comments »

Here are some pictures of the cabinets I built! Unfortunately, the builder hadn’t gotten some of the appliances, so the photographer was unable to get pictures of the bar, and one side of the island where the microwave sits. I hope that once they are in, I can get him back in for some more pictures. The kitchen. The island is a very deep blue, and distressed on all edges. The corner posts are chamfered. The granite on the island is one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve see...

Sandbar #3: Kitchen Cabinet Installation

05-03-2008 04:57 AM by Sparky977 | 4 comments »

Today was a big day! I finally installed the cabinets for my first full kitchen today! Rolly, our finisher, painted them at the end of last week. I am still waiting for the drawer guides to be delivered, along with the lazy susan hardware and the knobs, pulls, and shelf pegs. Also, the blue paint on the island is taking FOREVER to cure, so I haven’t taken those doors or the panels that will go on the sides to the jobsite yet. Oh, and I still have toe kicks and crown molding to go ...
