This step by step diy project is about diy kitchen island plans. If you want to build a simple table with storage for your kitchen, we recommend you to take a look over these instructions. Adjust the size of the components with great care and lock them together by using waterproof glue and galvanized screws following the instructions. Add drawers to the table if needed.

It is essential to choose the right materials before starting the construction and the assembly of the diy wood table. As you will see in the project, you need to choose durable lumber with a nice appearance, such as pine, cedar or redwood. Make sure the components are in a good visual condition and choose professional tools when adjusting their size. Take accurate measurements and join the components with glue and screws.

Building a kitchen island

Building the legs

Building the legs

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the legs for the kitchen table. As you can easily notice in the diagram, you need to need to mark the cut lines on the 4×4 lumber and to make the notches using a circular saw. Use a chisel to remove the excess and smooth the recess with sandpaper.

It is essential to take accurate measurements before making the cuts, otherwise the 1×4 cleats wont fit into place properly.

Building the tabletop frame

The next step of the project is to assemble the frame for the top of the kitchen island. Build the components out of 1×4 lumber and smooth the cut edges with fine-grit sandpaper.

Drill pocket holes at both ends of the short components and secure them tightly to the rim components, by using 1 1/4″ screws and waterproof glue. Make sure the corners are square before inserting the screws, otherwise the frame wont fit into place.

Attaching the tabletop frame

Drill pilot holes through the frame and secure it to the legs by inserting 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure the legs are perfectly plumb and the frame is horizontal. Leave no gaps between the components and add glue to enhance the bond of the joints.

Fitting the supports to the island

Next, fit the 1×4 supports to both sides of the kitchen island, as described in the diagram. Make sure the edges are flush and secure them into place with finishing nails and waterproof glue. Clamp the components tightly to add support to the joins till the glue dries out.

Building the shelves

Building the shelves

Fit the 1×4 slats to the slats and leave no gaps between them, making sure they ends are flush with the cleats. Drill pilot holes through the slats and secure them into place by using 1 1/4″ galvanized screws.

Top Tip: Repeat the process for the other shelf and smooth the faces with fine-grit sandpaper. Work with attention and invest in high quality materials. Use 2×4 slats if you will store heavy items.

Building the tabletop

Building the tabletop

Building the tabletop for the kitchen island is a straight forward process, but pay attention to details for a professional result. Drill pocket holes along the edges and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them together. Add glue to the slats in order to reinforce the structure.

Attaching the tabletop

Attaching the tabletop

Lay the tabletop on a level surface and center the frame of the table with great care and attention. Make sure there are no gaps between the components and drill pocket holes through the 1×4 frame.

Add glue to the frame and insert 1 1/4″ screws through the frame into the tabletop. Make sure the corners are square and leave no gaps between the components. Remove the excess of glue with a damp cloth.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.

Top Tip: In order to protect the lumber from water damage, we recommend you to cover the components with several coats of paint. Place the wooden bookcase in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
