This is a project that came by necessity, we needed more cabinet space and more counter top space. I wanted a different look so i decided to go with the rustic/ modern look. I had some hickory lumber that i had milled some time back from a tree that had been down for some time in the back of my property. We didnt have much space to work with so I had to build it kinda small it is 44”X 24” base and the top measures 48” X 36” I tried to lay it out to fit our need the best I could in order to store as much as we could in it. It comes with flaws but it seems to work for us really well. I hope some will enjoy looking at it and that it will be easy on the eyes Thanks…

This is so beautiful. I love hickory, especially when paired with a rustic design. Good job.

Hi Mike,

That’s a nice looking cabinet.

I haven’t worked with hickory yet, but it’s a good looking wood.

Thanks fellas for your kind word,
The story on the handles was my son`s dogs drug up a bunch of deer antler in the yard so i cut them up and used them for pulls . they worked really well

Great looking kitchen island. Nobody will notice the flaws. They will focus on the 99% of your project that looks fantastic. I feel the same way about everything I make…
