« Part 2: Gum nuts Part 3 of Foot Stool series Part 4: Some carving for the top »

Our club is very fortunate to have a few shipping containers of timber for the members to use and I was crawling through looking for something with some character for the legs. I found an old dirty piece marked Turpentine which I new was Aussie hardwood so thought I would run it over the jointer to see what was inside. WOW look at the beautiful figuring in this baby!

That is one beautiful piece of timber David.
I love doing that sort of thing, running a crudy piece of old timber through the thicknesser and WOW, always pleased.
Top marks sir.

Always a surprise, what some use for building shipping crates…..One man’s trash, is another’s treasure.
