This is just a simple kitchen island. I made all the doors and end panels out of mdf since the home owner said they were going to paint it. They are painting it black. Not my first choice but since I don’t have to paint it they can do what ever they want, lol.

It has very clean lines and looks well made. Good job.

Painted black! Looks like you did a good job. Not sure I would like it black but sometimes you can’t be sure until you see the final product.

looks lile a quality island to me. Nice lines, nice joints. By my eyeball it looks square, a contemporary look.
Nice work. Would like to see that in cherry, with some real nice light stain to bring out the red in the grain.

Nice. What kind of hinges and drawer slides did you use? What’s the top made out of? I always makes my keister pucker when people paint wood.

Thanks guys. I used blum hinges and accuride full extension slides in everything I make and the top is just a laminate countertop. They are painting it black but you should see the rest of the house. Lime green, bright orange and red. They like to be different. I hate when people paint wood also and thats why I just used mdf for this. It’s technically wood but not really.
