no previous part Part 1 of Kitchen Island Project series Part 2: 1st panel glued up »

Old Pine and Plywood Island need an update, according to the Boss. Had her look through an entire 2 pages of images on Google….until she found something she wanted….

Not the best screen grab…but, at least it came with the important stuff….height, width, length…that I could use..

Already had spent $20 on a supply of Ash lumber….

Shortest is 2’, some of the longer 1×6s are 5’ long. Should be enough there. Waited on Moose & Squirrel to deliver a paper plan. Glad the Whatamatta U. Art Department could draw one up….


End view. There will be a panel at the top. Might be a raised one? Instead of the Towel Bar. There will be small casters in use. They doubled up at the bottom of the legs for that.

Instead of the wire mesh door panel….will be a raised panel.

Solid panels everywhere, drawer…just a single board, 5” tall. Shelves spaced to allow 2lt bottles to sit on them. Behind the door will be all the cookies sheets, pizza pans. May or may not get a second door, to allow access from either side…
Bottom apron will have a curve cut into it. Bottom shelf goes all the way across, acts as the bottom inside the door cabinet.

Need to make 2 webframes…above and below the drawer. Top on will also attach the top to the case.

Will start up a cut list, later….so I can glue up the needed panels….including the door panel…
Stay tuned….
