Modified Shepard Kitchen Island

I built this butcher block kitchen island from Ana's shepard kitchen island plans. I did however modify the dimensions and design to fit my needs.

Instead of cabinet doors I wanted an open design so I built adjustable shelves. The drawers are slightly smaller than the plans give to allow extra shelf room. I used full extension drawer slides. The plans have the total kitchen island height at 42" which I felt was a little to tall for the average person so I built this island at 37" tall. The top is an edge grain butcher block top built out of hard maple and sealed with mineral oil.
