I bought some reclaimed ship lap siding from the early 1900’s to build this kitchen island.It still had wallpaper attached to it! We live in a 5th wheel trailer and started full time rv’ing in 2000. Finally setteling down in south Texas about a year ago. We saw an island in a friends new trailer and my wife decided she wanted one, that was old looking.
I left all of the nail holes, dents, nicks and what ever in it, and distressed the edges to look like wear.

The wood is about 100 year old, I think, yellow pine. The kitchen island is 36 inches high, 54 inches long and 20 inches wide at the top, 16 at the bottom shelf.
