Reclaimed Industrial Flat File Kitchen Island

Reclaimed this flat file that came from a Ford Motor Company plant and it works perfect for kitchen organization. Great for cutting boards, knifes, and baking trays. I built a large drawer for pots underneath and also added shelves on the side. Topped it off with a butcher block top. A real statement piece for your kitchen!

    We are so pleased with this custom kitchen island designed and beautifully crafted by Powell Woodworks. I provided some key details that Mike Powell was about to incorporate for this very unique project.

    Inspired by a previous shaker style build for his own home, we had a few specific challenges that needed to be overcome and wouldn't you know it, Mike was able to meet and exceed our expectations!

    The island needed to fit within our small doorway and vestibule. Mike was able to build an island that could be disassembled into 5 pieces and easily reassembled in the kitchen. We also wanted hidden wheels. Challenge accepted again by Mike and cleverly incorporated into the base. Lastly, we asked for a pullout spice rack. No sweat for Mike Powell.

    So the most eye catching element is the reclaimed flat file cabinet. As an avid home baker, bakeware and sheet pan storage is always a challenge. The flat files are cavernous. I can stack full, 3/4, half, 1/4 sheet pans 3 deep in any of the 5...yes...5 drawers. I even have space for oversized cutting boards and my collection of rolling pins.

    Can you tell I'm stoked?

    I totally recommend Powell Woodworks for your next project. Please check out his projects on Custom Made and on Facebook.
