It's a pain in the neck sometimes with the wood surface I have. Anytime I want to work with any meat I have to drag out a cutting board and then theres another thing that needs to be washed. If/when we move, I'd like either a portable SS workstation that I could use outdoors with the BBQ or in the house, obviously. OR a dedicated 'butcher station'. The portable tables are frickin' expensive though.

My island only sees dough, fruits and veggies. Things of that nature.
You're right, those work tables are expensive. And we have to remember that when we set a hot pan on it, the whole table top gets hot. But I love the big casters - I can just roll it around wherever I want. In fact, every cabinet in my kitchen is free-standing so I can just carry them out or re-arrange them. The sink cabinet is too, but I'd have to disconnect the plumbing to move it. I love the idea of a butcher's station. I've added that to my dream kitchen wish list now.

Oh yeah, PDS! If I had a breakfast nook like yours, I'd never get anything done! I can see myself sitting there all day at that gorgeous table, drinking coffee and gazing out all those windows. It must be heavenly!

MK my kitchen is rarely that neat for pics I just moved some junk from counter to table and vice-versa. I always tell people my house is messy because there are people who actually live in it.
