I’m very happy to be nearing completion of another project. This time using Iroko, used as a teak alternative, grown in Africa. A very dense hardwood with beautiful tight grain, an absolute pleasure to work with.
This piece began its manufactured life as a School Laboratory worktop from the South of England early last century. See the hole which housed a bunsen burner. I promise I didn’t make the other markings.
10 years ago I made a Jewellery box out of the very same batch of wood. A week ago this was the last slab being cut up for this project. Roughly 120cm by 60cm by 3cm thick, it is perfect for what I had in mind.
I posted a short video clip of an airplane being cut out. Any ideas what this project could be?
