“There’s a lot happening on this island,” jokes Norm. And he means it. Clad in panels of beautiful reclaimed heart pine, this one features a butcher block top, a drawer-mounted microwave, tray storage, and a carefully engineered pull-out drawer for trash or recyclables.

This beautiful and highly functional centerpiece, with two massive turned legs also done in the old pine, is no mere cabinet – it’s a statement where old values and new realities fit very well indeed.
