Custom Kitchen Island

One of the most requested items in kitchen design is a kitchen island. The demands placed upon kitchen space make the addition of an island an important, almost necessary element, thanks to the flexibility in what the island can be and contain.

Add the Countertop After the glaze has dried, the pre-manufactured island countertop (in Antique Matte Finish to match the glaze) is ready to go on. Before placing the countertop on the cabinet, make sure to measure all the way around so that there is an equal overhang on all sides (Image 1). Fasten 5/8″ screws through the plastic brackets and anchor them into the solid wood undersurface (Image 2). The new custom made kitchen island is complete and ready for placement (Image 3).

Glaze the Island Before putting on the countertop, it’s best to do final painting and glazing. Glazing the island will add color and bring out the texture of the island. Begin painting with the glazing gel (Image 1). With a cotton rag begin wiping the gel, going with the grain of the wood, until you have the desired texture (Image 2). If you wipe too much off, simply apply more glaze and wipe again until you achieve the desired look.

Add the Feet Choose feet for the kitchen island. Set the foot over the filler block and mark it equal distance from the corner (Image 1). Glue the foot to the filler block (Image 2), clamp into place (Image 3), shoot a nail into place and take the clamp off and put another nail just off center (Image 4). Spread glue on filler block and nail it directly into the island (Image 5). Add corner molding to hide corners where the beadboard meets the oak. Cut to size, put on a very thin bead of wood glue, and press into place (Image 6). Secure with finishing nails. Oak is a very hard wood and can split or crack. Always place the nail in at least one inch from the end to avoid splitting the molding.

Add Corbels to Support Countertop Corbels need to be added to support the countertop of the island. Using two brackets to support the countertop, space each one an inch and a half from the edge. This will create even spacing for the corbel (Image 1). The screws holding the corbels need to be screwed in perfectly, about an inch down from the top of the corbel. Transfer the mark to the island and drill a hole for the screw (Image 2). Attach the corbel onto the bracket, making sure that it is perfectly lined up with the top of the cabinets (Image 3).

Cut Stock Cabinets to Size Begin by choosing the look and type of material you would like to work with, including stock cabinets, molding, toe kick, glazes, feet and corbels (Image 1). The stock cabinets may have to be trimmed down so that the height of the cabinets is the same. The easiest way to do this is to adjust the height of the toe kick. Using a square to determine where to cut the height of the toe kick, line it up from the existing toe kick and make a straight, level line (Image 2). Before making any cuts, inspect the cabinet for any staples, nails or screws and remove them before cutting. With a trim saw, cut along the toe kick reference line (Image 3). Tap the toe kick a few times with a hammer and one side of it should pop right off. Cut the other side of the toe kick. To create a recessed toe kick on both sides of the island, measure 3 ½” along the side of the toe kick and use a reciprocating saw to make cuts (Image 4).
