Kitchen Island Victory

We needed a smaller kitchen island since my husband began to use a wheelchair. I modified Ana's plans for the drop-leaf round storage table using 1x2 slats instead of plywood for the shelves. I love using pocket holes and ended up using almost 200 for this project! It's very solid and stable in spite of the increased height. We love it!!

Estimated Cost
$80
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Select Pine from Home Depot
Finish Used
After sanding, I used an all surface primer followed by another light sanding then only needed one coat of a latex enamel for the base. I applied four coats of butcher block finish on the top.
