Just finished up this kitchen island, I used birch, hickory, cherry, and cedar for the drawer bottom.
This was a fun project and my first go at hand cut dovetails. I am happy with the way the dovetails turned out on the front of the drawer…I will not being showing what the rear dovetails on this drawer look like. I read before that dovetails can be addicting and now know why. I enjoyed the satisfaction that can with fitting the two boards together.
The top is birch laminated together with the edge grain facing up. It is 29” wide and 22” deep. The overall dimension is 35 1/2” tall, 29” wide, and 22” deep. The island is mounted on a set of heavy duty 3” casters.
-- Power to the people.
