This is a big first for me. I was given some Mulberry logs. I had to build a re-saw sled and cut up the log and sticker it to dry. Then wait awhile. I then cut it into strips, cross cut them, drilled holes. Coated with poly and assembled with all-thread. I think it has gift all over it. I really need a joiner and planer. I will make some more as its a pretty easy project.

That is way too nice for a door mat. They would be great as trivets!

Either way, you did a great job on them.

I agree, I think that’s too nice for a doormat, very good looking. The same reason I use my beat up work bench, if I make a nice one it’s going to end up as furniture in my house.

Interesting concept, have never seen it before! I think I will try it with some purpleheart I have lying around.
