This project is a drop leaf countertop. It is an original design intended to maximize space in a small kitchen while also providing an attractive achitectural detail. This piece is constructed from solid gumwood in order to match the existing woodwork. Similar peices could of course be constructed from any suitable hardwood. At the time these photographs were taken, the piece had only been stained. It ultimately received a finish of shellac and wax. This piece is also part of a much larger project which will involve building cabinetry and furniture to fill several rooms. This was built entirely onsite.
Dimensions: Approximately 2'by4'
