Kitchen Island

I wanted a butcher block kitchen island so badly, and a friend of mine agreed to let me use his wood shop, so I quickly drew up sketches and then modeled my favorite version. (I used Autodesk Inventor.) As they say, "No plan survives first contact with the enemy" (the enemy in this case being actual wood), so once I started cutting actual wood it became clear that I would have to change a few things around, but I think I managed to keep the spirit of the initial design.
