Here is the new piece ready and installed. as you can see in the first image, they used a spray on stain, after they built the island. I also took the time to build a stronger support. Rather than two stubs to latch on to, the panel now has a bar distributing the load across the top.

If it’s to good to be true…

Well I found out why it was so cheap…

The middle partition between the two cabinets under the counter is cracked and no longer supporting any weight…

The top two corners were the only location that held any weight to begin with, and that is why it broke, So I will build a new version and reinforce it…

No plan survives the battle field

Ok, so I saw that art desk, but several months and a new job later, I found this Kitchen Island. I liked the top of it, and It has enough room under it to let me pull up a chair comfortably.

It was $300, so I figured, it was worth the buy, besides the original price was $800 so I figured I could play with it once I got it
