This is a kitchen island I made for Gaby last year. I made it at my workshop, then had to take it apart and reassemble at final destination. Because of weight and size could not be done otherwise.
The boards are of Platymiscium pinnatum also known as Granadillo, the structure are pieces of 1×4” of Myroxylon balsamum known as santos mahogany, Peruvian balsam, incienso, balsamo, balsam of Peru. Both are very hard and heavy woods, but very nice to work with them.
After a lot of sanding (that I like it very much) 4 coats of Tung oil were applied on a period of about 6 weeks.
