This is a kitchen Island with 3 way miter corners made with floating tenons. I’m a beginner at WW so this was a challenge. A first time at many things, breadboards, miter 3 way corners, tenons and mortaise etc

It is made of ash and finish with tung oil.
This is my first all solid wood piece of furniture. The design was inspired by a pic and dimensions from the customer. Yes, I’m starting and I already have customers. I am lucky I guess.

Have a great day
Alex

This is not is final destination on the pics. It will sit in the middle of a kitchen in a hundred years old house.

Very nice. I like the overall lines, and those mitered corners. Can I ask how the top was attached?

Thanks

I use the table top mounting clamps from lee valley. I made some grooves with a biscuit jointer to acomodate these.

Very nice job on that island Alex.
Those three way joints look like they came out great.

Thank you Eric, the y came out so so, I had to sand a little bit more than I though but overall it is satisfying. I’m happy with the result. My router table is really cheap and I had a hard time setting it to cut the mortises for the miters and the result assembly was not has expected. I’m saving to buy a decent router table/router combo. There is one with the kreg table and the Triton router that seem interesting where I use to buy tools online here in Quebec.

That is amazing , first thing I noticed that the joints WOW. I think you will like the Triton. I have a cpl of them. Nice thing about putting a T in a table is you dont need a lift for it just remove the plunge spring. Saves You Money $$$$ Enjoy.
