I had a friend who was interested in a small island with two stools that looked like this offered by a fancy home interior store. The reviews weren't all that great, even for the half off sale price. They needed something small to fit their space that would basically serve as a dining area for her and her husband. It is build out of spruce and whitewood lumber. White paint and dark walnut stain, with poly on top. The legs are two 2x4s glued together , then ripped each side to square it off making it an actual 3" x 3". The stools came from Ana's farmhouse counter stool plan. The island I just went with overall demensions and built it from there. Pocket hole screws and finish nails.
