Christmas Holidays are really monopolizing my time with my podcast show b/c I had to catch up on some commission work. This island is one of those projects. I was asked to do this island b/c the existing island was falling apart. They purchased it from a Big Box store and it was poorly made. This new version is not going anywhere. Every piece of the carcass is led into the next adjacent piece with dados. All drawers are dovetailed and there is actually glue in this project unlike its counterpart that is now in pieces.
Construction is paneled bead board wrapping the entire thing with solid drawer fronts defining the borders int he middle. The original island had four drawers that were very shallow, so I made three identical drawers with one drawer containing a removable tray for added use of a possible wasted space. The two shelves are adjustable to an extent in the middle of the cavity (specific to their needs). There is also a towel bar on either end (customers request).You might recognize the top I made a few months back, it was just transferred to the new island.
Materials used are poplar for the panel frames, Maple veneered bead board for the panels and maple plywood for everything else. This was a fund build and the customer loved it. You will soon find it featured on my channel after the new year showing how the doors were made with a cope and stick bit set and I will also feature the use of my dovetail jig to do the drawers. Thanks for looking
