Here’s a cabinet made from cherry for a kitchen island I just finished. It’s of the Craftsman style and much of the design elements came from the sideboard I posted a month ago. The granite is called Verde Fantastico. I think the green grain in the granite with quartz compliments the cherry nicely.

There’s a small shelf under the cabinet for a phone, pen and my cheaters. I spend a lot of time reading, cooking and other things at the island and this is a nice upgrade to my kitchen. The last picture was a before shot.

You’re right, it is a peninsula. I planned to cut the wall down and make it an island, until I saw how many wires had to be rerun.

That little shelf for the phone charger and misc. is a great idea. Free’s up the counter space.

Very nice, you did a good job balancing fine craftsmanship and funtionality!
Just a question though….how many people did it take to move such a large piece of granite ?
