This was a request from the wifey – need more storage space and a nice spot to roll-out dough. It is an oak plywood carcass and solid oak drawer fronts, with a reclaimed maple workbench butcher block top. I used rare earth magnets to hold the base trim pieces on – they hide the heavy duty locking casters to keep the island movable but give it a built-in look.

patcollins: The carcass and frames are stained with Minwax #271 “Classic Gray” : I used mostly white oak and oak plywood – red oak has a tendency to look “purple-ish” because the stain has a blue component in it. The drawer fronts are basically natural. Thanks
