Another one for my daughter, turned out great as a multi-functional unit. Awesome stove, and toy storage.
Plus, great height for either a tot desk or coffee table for when she gets older.
Though I had planned to add faucet and knobs(and still do someday) she got sight of it and end of story it had to go in the house. She LOVES it, gets used almost daily for the past six months, sooo I guess its a hit as is so far!
Flipped the bowl to the other side for a candy dish on a coffee table, or crayon/craft holder as a desk and used the circle cut-out as a decorative “insert” to cover the other sink hole.

Great job. My 3 year old only got a kitchen set from the store.

that is WAY cool!! Love how you can flip the hutch part down for a table!! I know how you feel about seeing the toy, I barely finished a walker push toy for my little one and she saw it… so I let her play with it. Haven’t even finished the handles yet.

I thought you had copied my kitchen till I see it flips down. What a great addition, wish I had thought if it.

That’s slick. Was it your own design or did you find a plan somewhere? I have some toddlers that would love this.

It was a compilation of looking at what felt like tonnes of different designs, then added the flip-down idea. Feel free to use my photos and do the math. It is about 21” tall at the counter/stove top and of course the top must be of equal height. I’m sure there is a better design than mine, this was one of my first projects. Good-luck!

Nice looking Toy Kitchen! And like Charlie said “Sure beats those plastic things!” My Grand dad made the whole kitchen set for my sister. It’s now over 50 years old I’m repainting it and putting it in a playhouse when it’s finished. (See the playhouse under my projects)

this is awesome. I keep wanting to make something like this. I may just have to use an upcoming time off for just that!

thanks for the reminder.
