Here’s the project I’ve been toiling over for low these many months. Its a massive 8’x 11’ kitchen island at the Rulo Winery in Walla Walla Wa. This beast, that the owners have lovingly come to call the “The Continant,” sports a solid hickory butcher block top. The cabinets are of rustic hickory. To make use of the dead space between the cabinet boxes on either side I designed an 8’ rollout cart that is hidden behind the front panel. This was a great use of space and it worked out really well too. Speaking of the front panel I used one of their wine barrel heads as a raised panel under the bar. And speaking of wine barrels, I built bar stools out of their used wine barrels too. These will have their own post soon so stay tuned. All in all it was a pretty awesome project!

Wow! I love the pullout wine rack/storage on wheels! Great use of space and a great place to spend time around. Great job!

That is an absolute mammoth masterpiece. Congrats and I hope it earns you many follow on commissions.

Q: Any tips on working with and finishing the hickory? We have a hickory kitchen and I’d like to start adding some accessory touches.

Nice Rogue. At first I thought the rollout wine rack was a bunk bed for tired cooks. It all looks pretty cool.
