Croquet Island based on Michaela Island plans

Using the Michaela Island plans, I modified them for this croquet-inspired island, complete with black iron foot rail, sewing spindle drawer-pulls, and iron-supported cantilevered top. The extra boards making up the overhang are also supported by a trio of 1/2-inch dowels drilled through several of the planks.

The top was stained using several colors, with sanding in-between, and finished with paste wax.

The bottom shelf is supported, albeit not visibly, using a croquet mallet head.
