5 Steps to Creating a Kitchen Island Using Stock Cabinets
Kitchen islands are essentially cabinets put together in the center of a kitchen. They not only provide great storage for any kitchen, but also extra counter space so many of us desire. Rather than spending thousands on a new kitchen island, create one using stock cabinets.
I made a peninsula, which is still part of my kitchen. All it consists of is one narrow kitchen cabinet, that sits on the floor. There are three drawers in the cabinet, that I use for cutlery, special cloths etc. I placed the cabinet about 18 inches out from the wall. Created a top for it that covered the top of the cabinet plus the space stretching to the wall. I put a wood edging round the top and tiled it. In that way, I have extra work surface plus a space where I can put Minnie's litter tray on the floor - in the 18 inch space between the cabinet and the wall. I have a door that I can put in front of the litter tray section so it is out of sight. Minnie can get to it from the back.
Worked very well, and cost me only the price of one quite common-place kitchen cabinet, because I already had all the other bits and pieces.

I like your spider. A bit of courage and determination is all it takes. Start small and work up. If he doesn't let you near any power tools and doesn't do any DIY himself, why has he got the power tools? Just wondering.
