My Kitchen Island came with me when I moved. It is hand made by a small scale carpenter outside of Luanshya in Zambia. It is made from an African hardwood called Mukwa ((Pterocarpus angolensis). Our new open plan Kitchen in Sweden was designed to accomodate my Kitchen Island. It is one of the most important pieces of furniture in our home. We speand hours centered around it, whether it be baking, serving the family morning breakfast or an evening meal with friends.
