This is a few parts of a remodel for a customer, The wood is salvaged heart pine, he had tounge and groove and beadboard walls that were removed so that the configuration of the house had a better flow to it, Some of this wood probably 75% of this remodeling project came from his house. The wood was then stained with a cabot dark walnut stain, and finished with a semi-gloss nitrocelulose lacquer.

The other 25% of this wood came from various sources, one having been a plant some where in michigan I think that was an american motors, then later jack daniels plant (one of the reasons I don’t like the taste of jack daniels :X)

The glass mosaic is NOT my work, just the shadow box that holds that light for it. Nor is any glasswork pictured, just the wood containing it.

The rolling island weighs in around 400 lbs, so it’s heavy enough to not have to worry about tipping, and while I like the drop leaf on the back, I am not convinced of the hardware I was able to find, not that it can easily be changed out now anyways.
