This is my first project in Brasil, I moved from Costa Rica this year. The wood is TIGERWOOD, from a sustainable management project in the amazon forest.
I was able to select the moment when the board was cut at the sawmill. It has been air dried since early january. I have spent many hours sanding it, something i love to do.
Started with 60 grid and went up to 2000 grid on the final stages of finishing. Finish is with Tung oil. Had planned to do the legs in wood also, but finally decided to use metal as this would help show the wood.
Last week I cut a board to make a live edge bench that will have the same design.
