Big secret here: not even kitchen contractors build kitchen islands from scratch.

Sure, there are exceptions, but most kitchen islands are built from existing base cabinets and countertops.

The method proposed by Black and Decker The Complete Guide to Built-Ins is to use kitchen bases you have removed, and re-purpose them for the kitchen island.

Because it's not as simple as ripping out a cabinet and slapping on a countertop, the book gives you lots of help in the form of text and images to make your island look professional.
