That is a Lovely Piece of Work! Deisign, Combination of Woods, Joinery, Leg Details and I’m with you on the Lattice Shelves, they “Lighten” everything up quite nicely.
Don’t tell them I suggested it ..LOL.. but maybe they could get you to make one HUGE, or some smaller “Prairie Style” Wooden Hanging Lamps??
Thaks for posting.

Very Nice Piece.Drill some dog holes; throw a couple of vices on there, and you could sell them as high end work benches with storage!Where did you get those wide casters. They must be sturdy to roll that big island around.The lattice shelves are really nice looking and the bread board ends are a very nice touch as well.
That house looks awesome.

Great job. Fits perfectly with the kitchen. Never thought of a island that size with wheels but it seems to make sense now that I see it. Espically in that kitchen.

A beautiful build and a fine choice of wood. The caster wheels dont do your work justice.

Beautiful piece of work, but those industrial casters stand out. Since they can’t go, why not “box” them in to hide them from view?

The casters aren’t my favorite either but they were the ones the customer speicfied. The red tires on them won’t get flat spots over time. I couldn’t really hide them as they are locking casters and they have to be accessable. Its just one of those things.
