Two tier Kitchen Island – There are many different types of kitchen islands, from built-in models with electrical outlets, hobs and even the sink, with traditional rustic wood ones, which go back to the origins of kitchen islands as the main feature of English, Provencal or Tuscan country cuisine. A store or made-to-order wooden kitchen island will set you back a beautiful coin, so save yourself a bundle and build your own.

Take two each of the 30-by-3 and 20-by-3 inch planks and plane a rim edge two inches deep and one inch wide. You will have to cross the rebate in long, smooth sweeps with the plane to achieve the desired cut. Mount the planks in a rectangular two tier kitchen island frame; the folded edge forms a frame; the discount edge on the inside part of the frame. The finished ends form the corners at right angles. Apply wood glue between mitered ends, clamp with corner clamps and allow drying.
Drill a hole through the center of all glued joints from the 30-inch side of the frames and then screw the frames together with pre-drilled holes. Remove the clamps. Place the 28-inch plate in the frame with the folded inner edge – it will fit perfectly inside. Lift the plate, apply wood glue along the rebate, replace steel blanks and screw down. This is your two tier kitchen island. Cut a 1-inch deep and three inches wide housing at the ends of all 33 inch planks, which are the legs. At the opposite end of the planks, cut housing to the same dimensions, but make it 5 inches from the end of the planks, rather than flush with the end of the planks as the first houses.
