Hi ya m8. That plinth is made of Tawa. The figured stuff is often rejected as people like their flooring to be all the same white colour. I used it because it has been in my garage for over 10 years….so why not I thought. Great for mad vacuum cleaner operators as it is very hard.

Thanks Andy. its very pretty… never had a chance to work with Tawa. will it work well as maple replacement? I find it very hard to find white timber suitable for cutting boards….

Yes very good for cutting boards. Small sections glued up rather than wide boards probably better. It does move a bit if not seasoned properly. If you can get your hands on N.C Cliftons New Zealand Timbers. The complete guide to exotic and indigenous woods. It is a very good book.

I tried to embed the video Wayne but haven’t cracked it yet. Got stuck on the share. Nothing to click on.

You click the share button, then the embed button

youtube

There then should be some code highlighted, you press control and C keys to copy the code. Next you go to where you want the embedded video and press control and v keys to paste the code into your post.
