Masterly Crafted

Extraordinary. Carved, pegged, and joined entirely by hand, it's no understatement to call this kitchen island the stuff of dreams. The curvaceous design capitalizes on the unusual figuring of Pippy English Oak; the carcass is made of aromatic cedar. A smooth slab of light-reflecting, bacteria-resistant sycamore is used for the counter surface; just looking at this photo, I can almost feel the flow of the wood beneath my hands.
