We started with a huge butcher block top. It was pretty well used. Then we found 4 matching legs from the Habitat for Humanity Store in Atlanta. Well we had all we needed to make an awesome island or two!
It started pretty much like this below.
The boards for the bottom shelf are from pallets. Mr. Sensible made metal brackets to hold these in place.
We also made the legs for this one out of 2x4's.
