An Island For An Electrician

This island was desinged for every electician out there. Hollow supports to house the recepticals. All places do not allow this due to the cord hazard, but those that due really make it nice for installation of switchs and plugs.

Well hell that makes things too easy...wheres the challenge in that

I hate installing outlets in islands where there is absolutely no room for a box and the m.c. cable!

Great application, woodmagman. Another good application for an island with a pony wall to support the upper top, is to place is outlets on the ends of the pony wall, other than cluttering up the backsplash. It's a lot cleaner install.

Re: An Island For An Electrician

Have you guys ever put an outlet or switch behind a false drawer front?
It is a pretty slick way to do it....
