Brittany, I googled penny rounds and found some immediately at overstock.com. Daltile should have them, too. I would let your fingers do the walking.

Good luck!!!

You can find foot rails at a restaurant and bar supply store, cabinetry hardware stores, or have a metal craftsman custom make one. I would start with online searches for "bar foot rail." There are some sites that sell full rail kits, so you don't have to figure out all the different pieces you need. If you'd rather see and touch first, narrow the search with your city.
Good luck to you!

Thanks so much! This surfboard island was so much fun to design. When the family moved in, one of the little girls remarked that the house felt like a rock star's house.

Worktop - How do you fit the worktop around the structural pillar? Did the worktop have to be cut and glued around it? Thanks.

Yes, there is seam. There is no way to accomplish this application without one.

Thanks, the seam is not visible in the photo... We have 2 square pillars which we would like to put caesar stone around. Do you think the colour makes a difference to whether a seam is visible or not? Or is there a special technique to make the seam " disappear".

Thanks for your inquiry! The island counter is a Ceasarstone from their Classico collection in Vivid Green.

Thick flat edge of quartz - How did you accomplish the thick flat edge of the quartz especially with the curved shape?
   Comment   April 6, 2014

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The family wanted their house to be designed in a "Texas, Deco and industrial style." It took some time for the pair to get a good grasp of the unusual aesthetic request. After several meetings, they came up with a plan that implemented bright color, bold shapes and a clear view of the front yard. Designing the island was one of the most challenging tasks in the kitchen. The island is curved and canted, which made it difficult for the cabinet designer to work with. "He was used to making islands in a box shape, and instead he had to think in curves and in angles," Reardon says. The stainless steel metal bar was built as a footrest, much like what you'd see at a bar. Tile on column: Black Penny tileCountertop: SilestoneIsland: Caesarstone in Apple Martini
This surfboard island, with a black penny-round-covered post, is a fun focal point.
Karen Egly-Thompson added this to 6 Spot-on Places to Use Penny Tiles
ColumnsColumns don’t typically come to mind when one thinks of tile, but penny tile wraps nicely around curved surfaces. The only caveat is whether the seam will match up at the start/end point, and that is a function of the column circumference and the size of the tile and joint on the mesh backing, which all have to be calculated. This column is the star of the kitchen in this Texas industrial- and deco-style home.
