You’re right, I never thought of that! Before you put holes in your kitchen counter to store the knives, think about the effects of all that water draining into the lower basin! Could get ugly.

That spiral staircase is going to keep me awake tonight trying to figure out how they drilled that tree for
the round tenon, or if they just put a false plug in the other side. Either way it looks great. Thank you
for sharing and making me think.

Goodness gracious, these are spectacular. I’m supposed to love the woodworking but I can’t take my eye off that hammered sink.

All things unusual and out of the ordinary.

I essentially stole the Dare Studio’s desk design that I made and posted on here. I think that their designs are great.

From the look of that spiral staircase, they drilled pilot holes through the tree, drilled larger holes along them part way through, then bolted the stair treads in place and plugged the holes on the opposite side.

Asa for the sink/knife block, it might be wise to remove the knives before doing any plumbing under there!
