I found a big lump of unidentifiable wood floating around our shared workshop. Nobody knew where it came from … or wanted it.
It was very termite-eaten, so I spent a long time digging all the detritus and sawdust out. It’s amazing how compacted it gets. Then I tried cleaning most of the paint and other marks off.
The base is made from short offcuts of ash and oak. Actually, I started with the ash, but there was just enough for the legs. So the small remainder, I ripped and used as a facing to the oak as you can see in the second picture, just so there was a visual “whiter line” around the piece. The cross braces are all oak. The wedges for the tenons are ash.
(Unfortunately, when I backed up my computer, everything went deeeeeeeeeeeeeeep into folders which are unhelpfully labelled. So I can’t find the process pics, or ones of the base just on its own.)
It could be a small bench, or a sidetable.
Thanks for looking!
