Thanks for the reply, Dan!

A hob is a stove, a cooker (in this case, induction), without an oven underneath. It needs a worktop of at least 1in/2.5cm thickness for installation – the butcher blocks/solid wood sheets that I can get here are not thick enough. Hence, the idea of using the table – the mahogany table has a top of around 3/4in and the sheet I can get a little less than that, so it would work out.

I always wanted a very open island – my cabinets are on a wall, and I basically just want a large table (around 4ft/120cm x 6ft/180cm) with the cooker, at the right height for a kitchen. Just something that provides another surface for prep, and a breakfast bar on the other side (I’d have bar stools there), and a stove that faces outwards – I have an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room and I like it that way for entertaining.
