Thank you. I was rather proud of it. It was a tremendously long process that took over a year to finally complete. I debated over keeping the wood slab on top, but I had my heart set on a marble top, backsplash, corbels and shelf. Besides, I couldn’t make myself cut a hole in that thick slab of oak and came up with using it as a shelf..
