This is a kitchen Island that I built. Once again I do most of my blue prints by hand on Grid paper and I need to start saving them for post like these. I am sorry for those who want more detailed information on the build. This was made using 3/4” plywood, 3/4” MDF, Poplar 3×3 post, 1/4” Bead board and some 1×6 oak boards joined with biscuits for the top.

I fluted the legs for more detail.

I did a 1” raiser all the way around to leave a 1” gap between the top of the cabinet and the oak top so we could store the oven mitts.

Painted the island to match our kitchen cabinets: Martha Stewart paint called Sharkey Grey

This island is nicely done and a very practical way to add some more counter space.

From first hand experience, you have a keen sense of detail, your joints and miters are tight. Looks like a nice tile job in the kitchen….Good job

Wow, that is really nice. How did you attach the shelf to the posts?

I used pocket holes and glue to attach the shelf to the post.

I like the style of your small cabinets.
