found pics of this and thought I’d share it. A kitchen island with room for stools on one side, a space for a wine cooler, and plenty of drawer space. The frame and legs are cherry, and the infill panels are knotty pine beadboard. I usually like to do mortise and tenon joinery with my work, but given that this is a ‘static’ piece of furniture, it’s mostly pocket screw joinery. the top panels are pierced metal to promote circulation around the wine fridge (there are holes in the floor, too.). The top was especially labor intensive. I built a double-thick plywood platen, cemented a layer of weathered copper to it, beat the hell out of it with a hammer, and then added sapele mitered moulding around the outside that stood 1/32” proud of the copper top. Last step was to flood the whole thing with epoxy for a durable finish.
