« Part 1: Large Islands Part 2 of Island series Part 3: Islands are set »

This is the second of the two islands. And yes they go into the same Kitchen. This island is again made from Mahogany lumber and UV plywood interiors. Again this Island has a bowfront cabinet on each end and the huge corbels on all 4 corners just like the first island.

end with corbel #2

This section has a farm sink cabinet centered between 2 dishwashers.

This side has a bowfront cabinet ceneterd between 2 cabinets that are built opposite of each other. The small center section of each cabinet will have pullout spice racks with carved posts on them. The larger sections will have pullouts and the center bowfront cabinet will have curved front pullouts as well.

Again these cabinets will have Inset doors and veneered panels, molding and Carved baseboards. Along with a lot of gold etching.

It will be a couple of weeks before I get the doors and panels done but I will keep this blog going as things develop.

Jerry the corbels should have been a little bigger in my opinion. ;o) Looking great, glad to see you guys are staying busy.

Hey Jerry;

Fine looking work, for sure!

I think Les is right, the corbels look a little small! LOL

Karson, this house has a working kitchen, main kitchen and a kitchen niche as well as a butlers pantry. These go in the main kitchen which I will let you know more about tomorrow. I am helping set these islands tomorrow.
