I was asked to build this for a gal who was looking for a new island built with old lumber.
I talked her out of all barn wood and made the top and drawer fronts from reclaimed pine.
The case is 5/4 clear pine and drawer sides were made from cottonwood for contrast.
She picked out handles,wheels hinges from Lee Valley. Catches on cabinet doors were from a flea market.
The top was from a local barn that was being salvaged. It was a design build project , no plans were used.
She just gave me a photo of something she saw and we worked around that .
General Finish milk paint for the black and rubbed in Danish oil finish on top is what she requested..
One side on bottom has a shelf , the other side is open.
I need to get more posts up on my shop page since I joined LJ I have been buying lots of tools according to my wife.
