This last week or two, my time has been severely curtailed, whilst supporting my Wife who is starting up a new business, but without some form of woodwork, I would go nuts, therefore I have been using up some of the reclaimed mahogany, I collected from around the garden when we moved in, it had been disguarded like firewood, an absolute waste…well it was, until I came along! I denailed it, stripped the paint off and put it into store, now it has come out, and some has been used to make dining room shelving, using a keyhole bit to rout the backs for the screws. It has all just been beeswaxed, no stain, just natural.
Today I finished the mirror to complete the set, I could stand all day just waxing hardwood, there is something very therapeutic about the process, I think I will have to put a piece at the end of my bench, and when I feel stressed, just go and do some waxing ha! ha!
