Free Plans to Build a Napa Style Inspired American Barnwood Island

– Posted in: Plans, Storage

A couple of weeks ago, I published plans for the Napa Style Inspired New American Barnwood Kitchen Island. This version is a little smaller but just as stylish and easy to build! This particular island features a drawer on each side, shelving on one side, and an open cabinet on the other side!
