Kitchen island with wine rack, southern yellow heart pine top

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Kitchen island with wine rack, southern yellow heart pine top This was a commissioned piece for a friend who works with my wife. The heart pine was wide, 15” I think, and was harvested by a relative of hers. Always fun knowing you can't get another piece!
I haven't used pocket screws since this, I've graduated to real joinery now, but we have to start somewhere! Next time I'll cut mortises for the square dowels, those pocket screws probably took longer than mortises would have.
The base was framed with 2×6 and wrapped in 1×6 paint grade lumber. The legs (bought from Osborne wood products) bolt to the base from underneath. I mortised a threaded plate into the bottom of each.
She wanted it distressed and chose this pale blue color, I'm happy with the end result! I simply scuffed corners that would've actually worn over time and wiped those spots with dark stain.
The tops were finished with Howard's butcher block oil /wax blend, as was the matching cheese board (I had just enough leftover to make that for them).Thanks for looking!
