Kitchen Island: Selecting the Right Hardwood
The journey to the perfect kitchen island begins with the selection of the right hardwood. Oak, hickory, cherry, and more—the options are endless. Each hardwood carries its own unique charm and durability, allowing you to choose the one that suits your style and practical needs. And here’s where the magic happens: the ability to craft a kitchen island that reflects your personal taste and preferences.

But why stop at traditional hardwood? For those who crave something truly one-of-a-kind, reclaimed and live edge wood offer unique options. Reclaimed wood brings history and character into your kitchen, while live edge designs add a touch of the natural world. As a maker, I relish the opportunity to work with these exceptional materials, turning them into functional works of art.
Allow me to introduce you to our most recent commission—”Autumn Leaves” a Reclaimed Pine Kitchen Island for a client in Texas. It’s a testament to the enduring allure of reclaimed wood and our dedication to creating custom pieces as unique as the tales they tell.
Crafted from reclaimed heart pine, this kitchen island boasts character and history. Its distressed base, with red and brown undertones, adds rustic charm to any kitchen. And the best part? It’s customizable. You can choose the size, finish, and even the hardware, making it a reflection of your style.
Reclaimed Wood’s Growing Popularity
The appeal of reclaimed wood is on the rise. It’s not just about being eco-friendly (although that’s a big plus); it’s about the stories it carries. Each knot and grain hints at a past life in barns, factories, and warehouses. It’s this character that gives reclaimed wood its timeless appeal.

At Dovetails and Stitches, we’ve noticed this trend catching on. Our reclaimed gym floor table tops, for example, have become quite popular. Crafted from salvaged gym floors, they offer a unique blend of nostalgia and functionality, making them a standout choice for many spaces.
