The center pieces for the Shaker Table is fiddleback (an alternating grain pattern) Tasmania Myrtle (Nothofagus Cunninghamii). Although, I’ve had the timber for 12 months, only now that it’s dressed I can start to appreciate the colours and grain. In these photos I’ve splashed the table with some methylated spirits to show how the timber would looked like oiled.
Timber sourced from Boutique Timbers.
We’ve had some debate at the Woodwork Forums about pro’s and con’s of staining that white patch (see here). I’m going to wait until it’s flattened and review it then. I’m very hesitant to change it.
