Rescued this wood from Bunnings warehouse scrap bin. No idea what it is but came up OK.
Had a few worm holes which I filled with epoxy and coloured sand, the finial was turned from Corian.
Hope there is not to big a percentage of foreign material used. I ran out of ice cream and just couldn’t help myself.
