Project Information

Another early project (2002). I had NO IDEA what I was doing back then, but I'm still proud of the results!

This has a 2×4 frame which was "veneered" with 1/4inch birch plywood. The ends of the counter support are bookshelves made from clear pine. The trays in the middle pull out on drawer slides. The top is butcherblock. All but joints and screws. ... And you can plainly see what a great job I did hanging the door! (Which is 1/2inch MDF laminated with birch ply!).

The rewards for the job well dome come from the cook who uses the counter every day. I suspect you're well fed…both physically from the good food and spiritually from your wood projects.

Looks really nice, but you really shouldn't store spices in clear jars out in the open like that. Kills the flavor fast.

Now that a home project no man would argue with…you got the "SWEETER END" of the deal on this one…Blkcherry

yeah, that looks sweet to me. I like the particularly the book holder on the shelf - is that built in? what a perfect place for it. also, is the lighting recessed/underneath that "apron" hanging from the ceiling?

The book holder's just one of those metal ones-$5 at bed bath and beyond. Yep, the lighting is a simple track like inside the apron: Home Depot's store brand of track stuff is super versatile.

Looks really good. I was looking for some kitchen ideas and I think this is the ticket.
What did you use for the shelf brackets?

The brackets are right from Home Depot (in 2000). They screw directly to the studs and then the boards sort of clip into them… held there mostly with friction.
