Build a DIY Kitchen Island ‹ Build Basic | This kitchen island is made from a surprisingly simple frame built around two stock cabinets, and can be sized to fit ANY base cabinets by changing only ONE measurement. When we started our kitchen remodel, this exact island was quoted to cost just over $4,000 (not including the countertop…yikes!). We built it for under $250 using only basic tools (i.e. drill, miter saw, circular saw, etc).
