Project Information

Here's my new kitchen island. Made from red oak if anyone couldn't tell. It is made of 4 separate cabinets and the base is one separate piece as well. I ran power into the base and on one side where I had room. I even made the countertop myself-first time for that. That was the easiest part but I did sweat a little during the parts involving the laminate is it was an $86 piece. Two coats minwax cherry and then minwax poly finish it off. I think it turned out ok but post is bugging me, something isn't quite proportional or something.

The post dosent show the toe kick, That is the only thing that looks a little out of proportion to me.

Nice work. If you did want to do away with the post but still feel you need the support, you could always get a corbel or make a curved support. I like red oak…

You did a very nice job on this piece. Looks good to me. The more laminate work you do the easier it gets. Thanks for posting.

God Bless
