    WIP-Another Kitchen Island, but with butcher block top.

    Legs were turned back in June, and some work on the cabinet, but sat idle till today, just been too hot this summer. I turned the little window a/c on, at 6 am, in hopes it would cool the shop. I did manage to get the rails and stiles done for the 4 rp doors. A few pics!

    The stain has not been picked yet for the ash. Or the knobs/handles for the doors, to be picked out also. Top coat will be semi gloss post cat lacquer, same as wifes island. Maple top , salad bowl finish.

    Brian i went and looked at you pics on the web to see how you did the legs. Am i correct in understanding that you laminated the ash to a square from what looks like around 1 inch thick boards. ?
    cheers

    Yes, from some air dried 5/4 ash I bought last fall. I made them 1/8" oversize or so, trimmed on the jointer to remove corner chip out. Then touch up on lathe, going to do this method from now on. The 1st island , for the wife, I used filler in the chip out.

    Some more pics. Gone as far as I can. Bought the wrong Blum hinge pack, so I can't mount the last 3 doors! Made up the spacer blocks, glued & pinned them on, then attached the legs using screws.
