Ok, so I had an old kitchen table made from rubberwood strips and I moved house, I had to cut the table down to fit in the new place and was left with some rubberwood. I also had a few strips of wenge left over from a previous project (man that stuff is hard to work!!!) and so I set to work gluing it together and had some fun coming up with a kinda pattern.
Glued it all up and got to work with a low angle block plane, sanded and finished it with sunflower oil.
It now resides in my partners kitchen, except she likes it so much, she wont use it.
Go figure!

Nicely done!! Tell her to just cut on one side and display the other side, unless of course she is as oooo good, she is able to cut on both sides at the same time.

Looks great, like the cool pattern and very nice contrast of wood colors. Great job!

Have your say...
