kaboodle hack: island extensions

Add a touch of design flair to your home with an island extension…it’s both functional and beautiful!

A big trend straight from Europe is the layering of benchtops. These can either be layered in a table formation or as an island extension. Try mixing timbers into a design that features solid colours to add texture, warmth and design flair.   

What You Need?

  • 1x vic ash benchtop

  • 50mm screws

  • Wood glue

How to Hack It?

  1. Cut the benchtop (a) down the middle lengthways.

  2. Using the wood glue, join the two pieces together and then screw from the bottom for added support. Allow up to 24 hours to dry.

Sand back the tops and edges and apply a sealant of your choice.
