Just when we thought we were past the hardest part...

butcher block top

...it's time for Ronak to flip the entire island upside down, so we can attach this attractive butcher block top with hinged drop leaf. (Do you see the error we made in this picture? The hardware doesn't line up. Yeah, we're going to have to fix that.)

This is where the wheels will go...

...with this handy, special, little wrench.

Ronak attaching butcher block top to base

Luckily Ronak can fit inside the island, so he can finish attaching the butcher block top.

upside down island

Hmmmm.....looks good, but a little upside down. And this time, when Ronak flips it, the island's going to be a lot heavier.

While Ronak flips the island, I attach a handle to the cabinet door.

In 2007, we moved to Austin, and this blog chronicled our adaptation to Texas life: festivals, wildflowers, and bats - oh my! Then we had a baby, and that changed everything, so now, we blog about where to buy organic food, what parks are fun for babies, which exterminator is taking care of our scorpion problem. (You know, the usual parental concerns.)
