I needed a MOBILE kitchen Island because of the way my kitchen is set up. The white folding doors behind the unit house the washer and dryer… SO if I need to do laundry I can pull it out of the way and even fold cloths on it. It was made out of construction pine. Lost some patience and could not wait for a real maple Butcher top so used a Spruce one from Menards. I could of made one out of a hard wood but maybe replace the soft wood top another day. Its is only held only 4 screws.

This is the first thing I ever used Kreg jig on. I don’t know if I like it or not? Still on the fence on that one.

I thought a long time and how to finish it. I ended up with 2 coats of Watco Danish oil Natural. then two coats of finishing wax. Hinsite…. I would of just been good enough to do 2 or more coats of good Fiddles and sons wax.

This thing will be taking care of zoo many issues in my kitchen.

Well enjoy..Oh almost forgot. You will notice the end of the left folds out cause there is a corner you have to walk around to get into the kitchen so it leaves room for that when folded down

If you will notice my kitchen floors are PINE! I have never seen PINE floors before I bought this house. I found some great rustic drawer pulls at Menards as well for it
