Well, actually, we just got a kitchen island which has doubled the counter space. It came in 3 boxes delivered by UPS and was assembled by Roy in an evening.
::::Cautionary note to my local readers; UPS decided it was too inconvenient to actually deliver the 3 boxes. The driver dropped them by the side of the road about a half mile from our house! Fortunately, one of our neighbors investigated the boxes, saw Roy's name, loaded them in the trunk of her car and delivered them. Be assured I am on the hunt for some one's head on a platter.:::::::::::
Back to the island! There were bags and bags of screws and other metal things and many many pieces of pre-drilled nicely finished boards. Here it is finished and in all its glory. It fits perfectly in the kitchen. I am thinking it would be a wonderful place to put out cheese and wine, yes?
