no previous part Part 1 of Island series Part 2: Large Islands »

Here is the first of 2 large Islands that I built this week. This Island is made of mahoganey wood and is 62” wide X 116” long. It has 2 bow front cabinets on the ends. The cabinet interiors are UV plywood.

This side has a prep sink, two drawers and a warming drawer, and a door that opens all the way to the floor for a trash can and a small stool.

Island front

This side has two special pullouts on the left and right cabinet and has 2 huge pullouts in the center section.

island back

The corbels go on all four corners and are hand carved. These will be stained and will get gold etching to highlight them. 2 of these will also have an outlet that pops out and will be hidden behind the carvings. This will have to be routed out when we get the outlets in and before installation of the corbels.

This island will have inset doors with veneered panels, a lot of carved molding and special carved baseboards. I will post more as these develop.

The corbels really get your attention with this island. They are massive. This is a going to be an interesting piece to see when it is finished.

The corbels were actually ordered from Columbia. These things are about 14” wide and 12” deep and 29” tall. Will just have enough room to put the base under them.

Hi Jerry;

Some corbels they are!

Good thing there’s four of them.

Otherwise the island would tip over and become a peninsula!

Superb work!!

Great looking. Waiting for the finished product.

I guess you are also.

The corbels are huge! I have to agree with Nicuto, they are definitely a continent in their own right. Wow… definitely a stunning piece of work and great design detail.
