This is a project that has been 3 years in the making. I bought the yellow pine 3 years ago and cut it to rough dimensions and I painted the plywood panels. Then I shelved it all until recently when I decided it was time to finish it. My original island was just a plain white base cabinet. I made the bowling alley top 15 years ago when I built the house. I wanted an island that looked more like furniture so this is what i came up with. It is 46” long and 28” deep with an overhang on the back and one end for bar chairs. The drawers are 24” deep with full extension slides. My wife wanted to keep the original drawer fronts and doors. Since we are always charging iPads and phones and other devices on the island i put in two outlets, one of which has usb ports. This was a fun project. I know I’m in the minority, but I like yellow pine. Thanks for looking.
