Friends of ours wanted a large kitchen island that incorporates a gas stove top, wine rack, large deep pot drawers, a pull out spice rack and comfortable seating for 4 along one side. I used 110mm sq pine for the legs and 54×110mm pine framing. The cabinet panels and doors are pine tongue and groove. Cabinet cases are 16mm melamine white board. All visible wood is treated with an acrylic white water base stain to give it a “limewash” look that is very popular here. The top is maranti long grain butcher block. Because of the substantial size and weight of the finished piece, I built the frame, cases and top as separate components and assembled them in place.
