One of the best kitchen islands I’ve ever seen. So massive. True profesional work. I like those wine bottle inserts, not to mention extraordinary top with very nice looking edges.

Beautiful. Makes me cringe to see all those chopped up vegetables on there, but I guess they regard it as giant chopping board!

Really nice job on this wine cabinet. I love the butcher block top. That’s a great idea!

That turned out beautifully!
The top really makes this piece unique!

How did you glue up the top? When I recently did a chess board out of maple and walnut, it was very time consuming in the milling portion to ensure each piece was the exact same width so that when I lined them all up and glued them it would be possible to flip every other piece and match evenly. Even then, there was some differences, but fortunately they were very small. So, I guess what I am asking is, did you mill one long piece of walnut, and one long piece of cherry, then glue them together and cut it down over and over to get the squares to match perfectly?

Have your say...
