The island consists of two oak crates purchased from a local tile distributor for $15 each. One side was removed from the crates, leaving this side open. Wheels were installed on the bottom to allow for a flexible space and easy cleaning underneath. The counter is reclaimed from a racquetball court. Consisting of maple, it was sanded and installed on a single sheet of plywood. The edge is left unfinished revealing the original intended use. The maple is finished with the food safe tung oil, from the Chinese tung tree. The 8’ long counter, used daily for chopping, provides enough space for multiple people to prep a meal.
