My modified Michaela's Kitchen Island

I wanted to build my Wife a kitchen island and we settled on the Michaela's Kitchen Island design. I made it without the bottom shelf and bought a couple of spin top stools from Pier One. 

Ana, thanks for your awesome website that has inspired me to get into wood working. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, experience, and passion with the rest of us.

God bless,
Jody & Glenda Knowles

Finish Used
I used Minwax Polyshade "Espresso" for the top. For the bottom I used Modern Master's Crackle Finish along with an ebony latex base, and antique white latex top finish (the crackle medium is used between the top & bottom coat). I also gave the top a couple of extra coats of Minwax Polyshield.
