Custom Island Counter Top
The inch and a half thick Kitchen Island Countertop is made from solid walnut and finished with the Drouin’s Glen signature end caps. The walnut used to create the top are 4” – 8” wide boards using the face-grain for the most beautiful presentation possible. The walnut was then finished with several coats of varnish, which was then sanded to a glossy sheen using 2000-grit sandpaper. The final step to the mirror like shine was polishing the varnish to remove the sanding marks, just as you would do with finishing the paint job on your classic car.
Island countertops can be made to any size needed on request. There would be a 4 to 8-week lead time to allow the order to be scheduled and completed.
I am currently only building these for the local New England area market to come to the woodshop to pick up, as I have not found a shipping company that is cost effective for shipping these nationally as of this time. We can also arrange for a curb-side delivery for a fee to cover the costs. If you are not local but still want one, then…road trip to New Hampshire!
Price: Starting at $1,250
Island of Misfit Boards
Every now and then an “oopsies” occurs. Something like, we’re almost finished with the board and the wood tears out with the router, or there is a knot in one of the pieces. Either way, the board is perfectly fine, but cannot be sold for full price as there is a blemish so it is not 100%.
Another way is your just about ready for bed and boom; “The Max Headroom movie is coming on! I haven’t seen that since the 80’s, sweet!” (Yeah, I dated myself). You crank up the TV, open that “extra” bottle of wine and voila, the next morning you realize you aren’t 21 anymore. You then mistake the ¼” line on the tape measure for the ¾” line and cut away; well, you can’t add wood “back” …so here we are. After wondering if you were dropped on your head as a child multiple times, it’s posted on this page at a discount. It’s smaller than production but still perfectly fine and beautiful.
If there are not any boards posted here, then we are doing great! If there are…enjoy the discount and ignore that “You @!#$%^~ genius” scream…it’s only me, but the movie was good!
