This is an island that I built to compliment the kitchen which I also designed and built. The island is a free standing piece that has a nice notched trestle frame. It has adjustable shelves on one side and room for stools on the other. It also has a removable "occasional leaf" to extend the top 18" when the need arises. The top is antique spruce and has a nice golden patina.
I built the kitchen as well with ash with a nice grey wash finish. I can furnish more pictures of the kitchen upon request.
