I used the Ana White "Country Kitchen Island" plans to build. The only changes I made was the table top, bead board instead of pine planks, three drawers, and mostly 3/4" plywood. For the island top, i used the top of a maple desk and applied butcher block oil. To make things easier I used plywood to keep everything square and used bead board (very easy to install) instead of having to join boards together. After putting the shelves together I just used pine boards to cover the edges of the plywood. I also installed three drawers for convenient storage.
