Island Table


The brief for this latest table was to fit in with the surrounding kitchen, space.

The kitchen is a large "U" shaped set out with off white joinery, black tops and stainless appliances all sitting on a mixed Australian hardwood floor.

The table was also needing to be constructed higher than a standard dining table as the clients wanted to used the table with stools, more of an island bench, prep area, as well as a eating space. The clients also have a large dining table in another room. 

A footrest in the frame of the table was also part of the brief, so I had a custom made stainless steel section fabricated to suit. This was made from solid stainless rod, by Dallas Augustine (Sallad Engineering and Workshop and Design) Once again Dallas nailed it and the footrest was on point.

The top was made from recycled Messmate which finished up at 1500mm square and 30mm thick.

Over hung more on 2 sides for stools to fit under.

The frame was made from Victorian Ash and then painted to match the kitchen joinery.

The whole table was then sealed with a natural varnish.
