|For our first project, I built a kitchen island in my apartment. I had about 2 feet of counter space and needed more. To go and buy one would have cost $400 easy, so I built this one for $90. Follow the link to watch the video of how to build it step by step. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhJmGl5u8SE |
Please remember that this is my 1st episode, so they will only get better. I will be putting out a shorter, more comprehensive version of this episode soon. If I have left any thing out (which I know I have) that would help you better understand the project so that you too can do, don't hesitate to write and ask me. The following pictures show the progression of the island being built.
