how was it finished? And, how is it with stains and heat resistance?

Since there was to be food prep on it, a heated mineral oil was used for the top, five coats. The bottom was sealed with a poly varathane. As far as I know the owner has not had any problem with staining--the wood is well sealed. I would however avoid placing hot objects directly on the surface.

Can you tell me about the island shelves? - I LOVE the look of the spindle legs with the shelves in between...can you tell me how deep the shelves are, and are they actually bowed/curved or is that just an optical illusion?? Its a gorgeous piece!

Hi there, yes, the open sides of this island are curved. The depth of the shelves (at the middle where they are deepest) is about 10". The depth you require depends on what you plan on storing there. If large cookbooks, for example, then you should allow at least 10".

Thanks. If you search for "island legs" you'll find a number of sources online. Here's one example: http://www.osbornewood.com/island-legs.cfm
Good luck!

What are the dimensions of the island please? - I have chosen three pendants that are 8" in diameter to use over an island roughly 4x6'. Do you think this will look proportional?
   Comment   September 9, 2012

Madson Design
The island dimensions: 3'-8" wide. The two ends are both curved.. the length through the center is 7'-3"; the length along the outside edge is 6'-7".
The 8" pendants you have chosen for the 4'x6' island should look proportional. The spacing you'd want would be around 1'-8" or 1'-9" on center. Good luck with your project!

I saw that you crafted the island counter yourself. Is the wood pretreated or did you just seal it? - What type of finish did you use?

Madson Design
The island slab was glued up, leveled and sanded, edges and bottom varathaned
and hot mineral oil rubbed on the top working surface, five coats. There was a cupping problem because of the sealing differential between the oil and the varathane that was solved by
re-oiling and refastening the slab. This work was completed by Charles Pyle of Santa Cruz, CA.

Hi, the island is 3'-8" wide. Because of the curve on each end, the length varies: Measured from the center, the length is 7'-3". On the sides the length is 6'-7".

That's not a single piece - it's several planks that have been joined together and shaped.
Your local craftsman can create similar for you using the specific wood species or even reclaimed wood should you prefer in the size that meets your needs.

My island will be 4x6' in size and I'm thinking of purchasing these exact Seagull pendants. Two questions: do you think the misted bronze finish on these lights will blend with the ORB drawer pulls I have, and (2) if I have 8' ceilings, would the rule of hanging heights still apply?(30-40 above the island surface?) Many, many thanks.

DeCocco Design
Yes, your finishes will coordinate nicely. The height rule still works. What's most important to me is that the fixtures give you good task lighting, but when you look up, you're not blinded by a bright bulb--that's why dimmers are SO useful. And pay attention to the type of bulb. I'm real happy with Philips' Endura LED bulbs. An investment, but long lasting, dimmable, low energy cost, etc. These days we've got to pay as much attention to the bulb as to the fixture!

Look at Ben Moore's Sweet Daphne/530 for this lucious green with a dusty olive vibe. Too bright? Then try Ivy Lane/523.
