You guys are killing me with these LM's all over the place! I just got my Silvia/Rocky and I am in heaven... but now I am starting to get upgrade-itis. I can't look... they are just too cool... but now I know what I am getting in a few years.

Yeah it's a Sunbeam Bang Bang made from Oz. Everybody seems to like them. They are incredibly sturdy and heavy, they are also designed to be really easy to clean with removable molded pieces of plastic. I think Rob Hall and a few others have tried to source one in the US but they are a little hard to come by. I think there was actually two recent threads running for people interested. If you want a close up photo here's the link;

I've really been enjoying this thread. I check back periodically to see what everyones up to and it's actually a bit facinating. It's like visiting each persons kitchen. Cajun Brew I think your set up is quite handsome? Did I say that? :) Okay and I must say the tile on your back splash combined with your counter top color is quite cool too! Are those ceramic tiles or is that a pressed tin?

Hey Dom, here are a couple of shots of my set-up, particularly the island bench. I bought it from a nearby furniture warehouse. It took a lot of looking around before we found something that looked good and also fit the space. It's quite nice, it has a marble top, fits exactly in the space we had for the bench and also has a cool bottom shelf that could house the water bottles and the external pump.
