After using a small table in the kitchen for the last few months my wife expressed a desire for a kitchen island. With her input I designed and proceeded to build this cabinet. I learned a lot and hopefully will do better on my next cabinet. Photo 3 is of the backside—there are doors on both front and back. The top is made from leftover oak flooring. I hope you like it. My wife does! I guess that is what counts.

Very classy, I liked it a lot. What did you use for the top?

Nice job, it looks nice. But the fact that you want to improve shows you care. We all go through it, and improving each time is very rewarding. Great job and look fwd to seeing more.

very nice…is it shorter than the surrounding cabinets or are my eyes playing tricks on me?
