Boss wanted a new kitchen island..as she had outgrown the old one…

She found a design she liked (finally!) and I had to go out and buy a stack of Ash lumber to build it with….Last picture is a work in progress…The middle shelf is 3/4” Pine plywood. There is 3/4” pine boards for the drawer’s sides and back….and 1/4” Luann for the drawer’s bottom panel.

Took almost the entire month of June to do…..but, at least she likes it. There are casters under each leg, as she wanted to be able to roll it where, and when needed.

Nice job on the island, Bandit. I like the color.

Happy Wife = Happy Life! Sounds like a win to me?
Plus you found a valid excuse to have a couple of cold ones at end of each day in shop for whole month. :-)
