The Mission kitchen island leg is hand-carved from premium selected hardwood: hard maple, cherry, white oak, alder, and Asian hardwood. This island leg is triple sanded, ready to accept stain or paint. Our mission Island legs come in two sizes. Both of the legs have the same height, but the width is varied. The top of the wooden island leg measures 7″ with room for possible adjustment. The wider legs are used more often for kitchen islands while thinner legs can also be used for kitchen cabinets. These solid hardwood legs are true to Mission style and are great for additional support of a kitchen counter, or adding style to custom kitchen cabinets.
