This is a small coffee table, (40cm high, 80cm long, 60cm wide) made of recycled Rimu.
A friend of mine came over and showed me a Rimu beam that a friend bought him and asked for a table.
After milling the beam i found that the local wood pest, borer, infested this beam in the past – i don’t like the look of this but my friend didn’t mind. hopefully the borer is gone now (this is usually the case – if you see the exit holes the borer is gone).
all joinery was biscuits and the top is attached to blocks with oversized holes to allow for movement.
finished with 2 layers of poly/BLO/turp. was a quick and nice project.
-- The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep...
