A few months ago I had a hot tub here. The wife and I didn’t use it much anymore so we sold it and I built this cooking island. I utilized the 50 amp service I had for the spa for 4 dedicated 20 amp receptacles for all the crock pots the wife could throw at it. Will make large family gatherings much easier once this COVID BS is over with. The Island has storage for tubs of dishes etc. drawers for all my cooking utensils and a cupboard for foil pans. Lighting is track lighting LED on a dimmer. LED mood lighting under the edge of the countertop all the way around. A 2 burner propane gas cooktop. Challenge was finding heart redwood vertical grain for the doors. Finished with 2 coats of tung oil followed by 3 coats of spar urethane.
