Vintage Industrial Kitchen Island

By | kitchen island | No Comments

Here’s a good example of the kind of custom work we do. Our client, who happens to be a chef, loved our Firehouse table and wanted a kitchen island and dining table in that style. After designing it in Solidworks, we got to fabrication. The height was increased to 38″ for a more comfortable standing height, and we used a larger bolt size which better fits the scale. Sitting between the two tables on top is a small back splash. We used our reclaimed boxcar oak for the top which was sealed well with a commercial clear coat. The drop in Wolf gas cooktop has a popup vent sitting behind it that pulls the exhausts below. The client wanted a toned down version of the usual aged red paint with a more flat look. We added a couple drawers, a control panel for the vent, and a lower shelf for storage and the downdraft box.

This was built in two sections, the island (with the cooktop) and the dining table section on the back part. The island is 7′ wide x 4′ deep and the dining table section is 7′ wide x 6′ deep.

It’s beyond commercial grade, it’s industrial. All of our designs can be customized and tailored to suit your needs. We’re very please with how this came out as we love making new designs, and turning clients dreams into reality! We also have a video of it here:
