My biggest project so far. It was my wife’s 25th anniversary present. It was a gift that gave for two whole years. I finished it with a water borne urethane from Grafted Coatings. Beautiful stuff, easy to use.

Beautiful looking kitchen. The finish is gorgeous. You earned a lot of brownie points with that project I’ll bet.

nice table and kitchen. When we did ours I wanted to make the cabinets, but too many business obligations. Congratrs on making the little woman a happy camper :-)) I noticed the dowels through the tennons on the end of the talbe. Are they meant for easy disassembly?

First, that is an awesome kitchen. You did a wonderful job. I absolutely love the island.

Second, did you make the stools or buy them?

The stools were bought cheap at a kitchen supplier to get a feel for size and shape. The stools will be replaced with cherry and matching finish as I have time. We like to do full scale mock-ups of things I make. The first table is in my wifes sewing room now. It has melamime top and was made from 2×6s milled to size and painted. This table is 2” longer and 1” taller.

Thanks for all the kind feedback.
