McIntyre Kitchen Island

McIntyre Island Main
It’s always fun for me to have a piece commissioned by an individual who appreciates fine lumber as much as I do. That was the case with this piece, as the customer took so much interest in the material selection that he joined me on a trip to the saw mill to scout out some possibilities. What we found was a breathtakingly beautiful piece of highly figured Silver Maple for the top of the kitchen island he had asked me to build.

“I contacted Jesse about a breakfast bar, and when he brought the piece to my house and installed it, I was was so happy that we started talking about the island I had been shopping in stores and online for.  When Jesse delivered my island, I knew I had made the right choice.  The quality of construction and craftsmanship are unsurpassed, but the joy is in the “glow” that emanates from this piece as sunlight streams in my kitchen.  I know it could not be bought in any store and it will remain when my grandson passes it down to his grandchildren.”

Other than the lumber selection, he stressed that the most important features of this piece would be a good amount of drawer storage as well as a place to keep his knife collection. The storage situation was solved by installing three large dovetailed drawers with 100 lb. rated slides on one side of the island.

I knew the knife storage was going to be a tight fit, but I was able to utilize a 5/16″ gap between the drawer sides and the outside of the cabinet itself. I cut a corresponding slot in the top of the piece, complete with a circular hole at one end to house the sharpening steel.

The legs, rails, and face frame of the piece are made of soft Maple while the slatted sides and drawer fronts are made of dyed Poplar.

The island commission came about as a result of a breakfast bar that I had made for him earlier that year. The top is made from lumber from the same amazing Silver Maple log and the legs again are made of soft Maple.
