I am constructing a kitchen island that is the following shape
(includes curved walls):
I would like to use bun legs to make the island look more like a piece
of furniture. Can this be done, given that the island is 85" long?
Will be very heavy with that granite on top. The walls other than the
cabinets on the flat side will be custom built.
I don't understand the diagram, but if the island is a solid box like a
cabinet carcase, then you support it on a recessed (out of sight) base
of toe kicks and then trim it out with bun feet and split-dowel "legs."
The bun feet do not support the unit, and the "legs" are just molding.
Rockler has a bunch of examples under "wood products." I hope I
understood your question.
I'm not sure what CAD program you're using, but the results are more
than a little odd. What are those boxes and what's with woodwork
dimensioning to 4 decimal places?
As someone else posted, it's better to have a conventionally supported
cabinet with decorative elements applied. Cleaning under the island
would be a total bitch.
BTW, you are planning to have some electrical receptacles on that
island, aren't you?
