Making My Kitchen Island - With LOTS of Storage!

Оценок: 4266 | Просмотров: 330700
Here's a different design- https://youtu.be/4RMXEjGS1Fw Building your own furniture is great, not only do you get to enjoy something you made, but you also get to completely customize it to your every need. With this project I did just that, I used common materials that where readily available and inexpensive, sized it to fit my kitchen perfectly and built in a ton of storage which created a much more functional kitchen. The entire island can be made from materials from you local hardware store. While a lot of tools and materials where used to build mine, other tools and techniques can be substituted to make the project suit your skill level and available equipment. While I use a soft wood and paint the base in the end, you can use any wood you'd like and finish the base with paint, stain or any finish you prefer. This was an especially satisfying project for me, being the largest project I've built in the new shop and most involved video I'm made so far. I hope you all enjoy the video. Let me know if you have any questions and if you don't mind, share the video on your social media! It was a lot of work and I'd like it to be available to as many people as possible. Thanks again.

Probably late to the party, but I like this! I've been watching a lot of cabinet construction videos, most of them utilizing pocket screws from start to finish and some going traditional Japanese with no glue or electrical tools used, this feels like a modern interpretation of a much cooler building style with the joints that you created there!

Never too late to the party! Thanks for watching, glad you enjoyed the video.

Did you plane one side of lumber before you began ripping your 2.5" pieces for the top? Or was it flat when you bought it at the store? I am about to start my own island and debating to use your method or use 2x3 with my jointer and planer.
The Homestead Craftsman (16 дней назад)
Not 100% what your asking but the "proper" method if you have the tools is to Joint one face and one edge, place your jointed face down and run through the planer to your desired thickness, now place your jointed edge against the fence and rip to your desired width. I think you are just asking did I plane my lumber so the faces mate cleanly, the answer is yes. In that case, I'm not jointing anything. I just plane both sides and go with it. if there are small gaps, I just put a little filler of some sort in cracks and sand. When using construction lumber, I don't get too picky since you are using a lower grade lumber to start with, it's also in my own kitchen. Also, when you are using thinner strips, they will flex to fit tight, so having everything jointed with a jointer, isn't as important. This depends on the project. Pick your lumber carefully so that when you glue up the top, the strips are showing 1/4 sawn grain, it will make your top more stable and look better. You will see the long stripes of the grain instead of cathedral pattern. Google image if you are not familiar with those terms. Good luck, let me know if I can be of any help.

Hello Homestead Guy, you talk to fast for a newbie to follow what you were doing, when you were building the kitchen island. And nobody ever shows how the biscuits are made. The slots are always shown.
The Homestead Craftsman (7 месяцев назад)
Biscuits are bought, not made. They are made from compressed beech wood. They swell up when glued. The speed of the video is just how it worked out, if I went slow and explained the whole things it would have lasted hours. This wasn't supposed to be a how to, just showing the process. Have a look at some of my other videos, they vary in length and detail. Thank you for watching.

Have a question for you - if you wanted to attach an island to the floor, how would you do that?
Nick Pericle (9 месяцев назад)
The Homestead Craftsman thanks so much. You’re right, simple L brackets.
The Homestead Craftsman (9 месяцев назад)
L brackets and screws, pocket holes on the inside, or just trim around it. Not much to over think.
Daan Kromhof (9 месяцев назад)
How did you get all your tools? Like your jigsaw, tablesaw and everything else. Did you save a lot of money? Or did you purchase all those over the years?
Daan Kromhof (9 месяцев назад)
Thank you for actually taking the time to answer my question on a 3-year-old video. I really like the effort and commitment you put in! Al your videos are really helpful keep up the good work!
The Homestead Craftsman (9 месяцев назад)
I have just bought things as I need them over the years. I started out with pretty cheap stuff in college. I made beds from 2x4s and sold them. I started with a black and decker drill, a circular saw that shocked me and a broken miter saw. My beds bought me my first table saw, planer, and jointer. (All of which I've replaced) . I make and sell furniture, so it's a hobby/profession. Most of what I have isn't that expensive, but some are. Most of my tools you see have been purchased over the past 5 years...some before, with a lot of them being within the past 3. Yes I do save a lot of money, meaning a good portion of what I make, not real big numbers but over time it grows and gives you options. Don't get hung up on what you don't have, just use what you do have the best you can. By the time your an old man you'll have a shop full of tools!
Keisha Rice (9 месяцев назад)
I love your work. I been looking on YouTube to see how I can make my own Island. My big dilemma is my kitchen is not very big and I have limited space for my pots and things. I actually like this one that you are building. Do you live in the NYC area? If so how can I get in touch with you so you can make me one?
The Homestead Craftsman (9 месяцев назад)
I will answer your question with joking sarcasm......Do I sound like I live near NYC?

Thanks for this video, I don't know why I've never seen it before. I'm subbed and I've searched two way drawer before, but YT never popped this one for me till now. Go figure. I want our island to have a section of this type of drawer. So at 9:37 where you are constructing the slides, the drawers are riding on about 1/2" of spruce with a maple bearing strip, is that correct? The cuts are a little fast for me to fully see what is going on there.

13:39 i don't know why but i really dig seeing a youtube craftsman using planes that don't look like they cost an arm and a leg. I mean, I like lie-nielsen as much as anyone but no one needs a $250-400 hand plane, and youtube craftsmen are rife with 'em...
spydergs07 (2 месяца назад)
Some yard sales will have planers for decent prices if new store bought ones are a little too high. I bought a planer a few years ago on black friday and got it for $250. Normal price was $400.
The Homestead Craftsman (1 год назад)
We'll I've got both......but I don't define myself as a "youtube woodworker" I do this stuff regardless, I just post videos of some of my projects....p.s. A high end plane is nice to use.

How many of your followers do you suppose own at least 1/4th of the tools you showcase in this video? Other than that a great and inspiring material
Altair Ibn-La Ahad (1 месяц назад)
I built my kitchen cabinets with a hand me down circular saw, $40 table saw off Craigslist, and a $25 pocket hole jig I got from harbor freight, and a 30 year old corded drill. Probably another $100 for other stuff like a square, hinge jig, centering drill bit, and other odds and ends. So it can be done fairly easily if you really want to build your own stuff. Having said that building a kitchens worth of cabinets is a HUGE pain in the ass. It takes a long time even when you are batching out panels, space management can be an issue, and learning to hide your mistakes is something you learn very quickly.
cody0505 (1 год назад)
I have about 90% of these tools minus the thickness planer, track saw and jointer. But like the Craftsman said you do not have to have these tools to accomplish this build. That said those tools will make the job quicker/easier but are not required to achieve a good result. The secret to wood working is to start where ever you can start. Your builds will take longer and will be of lesser quality but you will learn countless lessons along the way. As your projects improve you can slowly build your shop to match what it is you are trying to accomplish.
arzus4 (1 год назад)
Slowly building my attic to be as versatile as possible for all sorts of wood work. Thanks for the feedback. Awesome job on the videos. Let me say hi from #Latvia
The Homestead Craftsman (1 год назад)
As I say in my videos, you can achieve the same results with a number of tools. Outside of a few tools in my shop, I'm not using tools that are that "rare" in the average hobby shop, maybe not yours but a lot of my subscribers have the same tools I have, some more and better shops. My shop is just my basement. Thanks for watching.

I want to buy a festool track saw and while I could afford to buy either or both I am just a diy person and cant really justify spending the money on both. Which would you recommend? I see you have the big one. I would mainly be using it to break down sheet goods but think the big one would be a good buy in case anything large came up. Your thoughts are appreciated.
jeremy dunston (1 год назад)
could you send me the link
The Homestead Craftsman (1 год назад)
I think you answered your own question. I would only want the big one. I use it for thin and thick. If you are going to buy the saw online, let me know. I can send you a link to purchase it on Amazon which would give me a small percentage, it's a way for viewers to support my channel if they'd like. Festool's sell for the same price regardless of where you buy them, so the price is the same. I also trust Amazon with purchases. Thanks for watching.

The Homestead Craftsman (2 года назад)
Go buy one....that's why I sell them. This one is for my own house, so I didn't mind the effort. For the ones I sell they are much more simple, no drawers, doors, etc. Basically tall tables with a shelf underneath......and my customers pay handsomely.

New subscriber here and also a new woodworker about a year. Also looking to build my own kitchen island/cart. Very impressed with your joinery. Loved the way the drawers slide on both ways first time I've seen it that way. I have to ask all those DeWalt vintage tools how many old dewalt power tools do you have?

I love this island. My wife wants something similar and the only improvement I can think of for our situation is locking casters on the bottom so we can move it around easier as needed.
Tim S (2 года назад)
The Homestead Craftsman if that's the case I may build it without wheels but my wife will of course have the final say since she'll be using it most. Either way the island is very nice and relatively simple. I'm adapting some different techniques to achieve similar results as I'm not very familiar with mortise and tenon yet and my skills are still relatively amateur. I can't wait for the new video.
The Homestead Craftsman (2 года назад)
I don't know your situation but most likely once you know where you want it, it will not move. I'm going to be posting a video on a new island build sort of soon and will also be doing a set of plans on it, so that may interest you. It could easily be adapted to have wheels. It's in a similar style as my tables and the first island video I did.

MWA Woodworks (2 года назад)
Great project and very nice craftsmanship! I have a couple questions for you if you dont mind. How do you find your softwood lumber supply? When I build projects like this I often deal with a lot of warping/bowing of the material when I cut it into strips or resaw it. As you did quite a bit of this in your video I was wondering how much you had to deal with this and do you have a method for selecting boards that will have less of a tendency to do this? My other question is now that you've had this island for about a year, how do you find the top is holding up? I often use ash/oak/maple for the tops as they take wear/abuse much better than pine. Anyway sorry for writing a book! Thanks for the video. Your work is fantastic! -Matt
The Homestead Craftsman (2 года назад)
I get the construction lumber from lowes. Mainly I choose 2X6 for spruce, not 2X4. I rip them up to what ever I need. I pick the lightest weight ones as well. When I use yellow pine like the top, I pick boards that I can use in a quarter sawn orientation. I had some lumber go crazy on me, but I pre cut a lot of stuff over sized and let it sit in my AC shop for over a month, that took out certain pieces. After having the island for a while the top is dead flat still. The only thing that would happen at this point is denting it up due to being softer but it will age nicely so it's not a problem. I could have used a hardwood but my wife wanted the pine. I have a bunch of kiln dried 2 inch ash and oak sitting in my basement. If I was going hardwood, I would have used walnut probably, or the oak maybe. The base is also doing nicely, of course the wood is softer so it's not going to be as dent proof as something harder but again, I like how things age, the first few dents are painful but over time pine furniture has a nice look

At about the 9th minute is a shot of your radial saw dust extraction unit. First time I see on such as yours. I recently inherited the same radial saw such as yours. How does the unit function? Are you pleased w/ it? If so, I may build a similar one. Thanks.
The Homestead Craftsman (2 года назад)
It works pretty good, there's somethings you could do to make it work better though, like an adjustable flap, to keep a smaller space around the blade when going back and forth between a single and dado blade. Also if there was some sort of way to cover the gap as the saw is pulled out, that would increase suction. But it works good enough.

2 quick questions,if i may 1)did you treat the wood for the butchers block top with any kind of food-friendly oil so food stains and the like dont penetrate the wood and create bacteria & such? and 2)is it difficult to add casters and wheels to the bottom of the island to make the island portable?
The Homestead Craftsman (2 года назад)
The top is polyurethaned and adding casters is as simple as screwing them on.
