This original utilitarian design will function will function well in a small space kitchen. Portable and stylish with a heat resistant inset, it can be moved around easily during food preparation and also adds to serving space for buffet style meals. The wavy Maple top is solidly connected with full mortise and tenon joinery. The gently curved perimeter helps keep it compact and eliminated the hard corners that would normally compromise a small space kitchen. The round over edge treatments add to its functionality as well, as accentuates the grain of the wood. The cut out hand holds aid portability and are a convenient spot for a tea towel. This counter height piece is well grounded with 3 x 3 reverse tapered legs. Pillowed top legs meld with the cloud lift top aprons to create the floating top. These gentle arched aprons compliment the shape of the top.

Like the gable lower rails the connection joinery is traditional mortise and tenon. The negative space where top gable rails are absent reduces the bulk as well as allowing access to the kitchen ware that could be hung under the top. Bringing the base together are the triple stretcher parts finished with pillowed ends, precisely half-lapped to the rails. The open design compliments your small space also by reducing the shadow effects of a solid wood cabinet. The inset options can be any of a variety of current counter top products granite, tile, marble, quartz, stone. Other detail options include top edge connection splines and cuffs on the feet. This is a beautiful, functional piece that becomes a center for any small space kitchen.
