Thanks for posting that one. It’s a nice one also! Teal Blue, one of my favourite colours! I’m not familiar with Jatoba Wood but if that’s the Natural Colour it’s Beautiful! Almost the same Colour as the Tim Hortons Coffe Cup beside it ..LOL..

Is that a Bosch Palm Router over on the other counter? If so ..I bought one a month ago. Love it!!! ZOOM… ZOOM… All Done!! Now I leave the Skill Plunger/Fixed attached to the underside of the table.

Very very nice piece of jatoba bartop and a kitchen island – a kitchen island of precious treasure, for sure!
I like your kitchen cabinet – design & layout & colour (is it the final colour anyway?).
Thanks for sharing.

thanks guys, yeah it turned out nice, th at is the final color, actually kind of a dark forrest green (kinda), the jatoba works a lot like mahogany , nice grain, very straight, super heavy though haha…

and thats a case for a Bosche drill back there, but we do have a few routers of theirs too, very good equipment,

thanks guys
