Well we are moving to a new house, and the new kitchen is seriously lacking in counter space. ( for now anyways lol ! cant wait to tackle some new cabinets ) So, the wife seen one of these in a store and said that would be nice to put the micro on. $ 99? lol I dont think so! I’ll make you one though! ( Which I think that she was really meaning all along) One thing Im really good at is looking at something and measuring in my head. I mean its really freaky how close I usually get. I actually came within a 1/4th on this one! Im sure Im not the only one that does this.

So anyways, its made completely out of pine cause thats what she wanted( keep momma happy right? ) Door is lap jointed and pegged. Drawers are dadoed and ride on wooden slides. Top is five 1×4’s glued and doweled together. Speaking of which I think Im gonna invest in a biskit jointer, those dowels are a real pain in the biskit.
well hope ya like it!

Also need to fix the date on my camera! lol

Jimi, good job. I don’t know what you did for stain and finish, but it really made the pine come alive. Great look.

Very nice build. The pine looks great and I really like the pegged and half lapped door frame. It is in keeping with the rustic pine lumber! Congratulations again on a fine build.

Nicely done. Much nicer than one of those cheap pressboard tables from the store.

My husband made a counter for our small, counterless kitchen by making two separate units that hold a 3×8 cutting board top on it. Each unit is about 32” x 42” and has either drawers or cabinet doors. The top is open, as the cutting board lays over it. Nothing is bolted, as each unit and top are quite heavy and they can be dismantled to move should you need to move it. It looks like a built in cabinet/counter without the extra hassle.
