hello fellow lumberjocks ,

Been busy and thought id ketch-up ,kindof happy how this teak vanity top turned out and thought id share
it 2” thick 18” wide by 60” solid teak joined down the middle breadboarded with thru pins sawn flush and where there was a defect in the grain i inlayed various pieces to restore the integrity of the wood to ensure no voids where water could invade (easily ) i also played around with a small gouge to put the detail on the frount edge ,the finish is teak oil of which i highly recomend any one looking to use teak in the furture to stear clear from the foaming applicator out now in a very well known home improvement box chain ,(the blue one), the forming can of teak oil is sticky and very hard to wipe off it doesnt penatrate as well as the straight oil and is more costly by volume ,,very dissapointing but another example of {if it aint broke dont fix it}........

Very nice, especially the embossing you did on the edge. I like it.

Beautifully done, amazing job. I love the design on the edge, and the inlays.
