a simple little table, made from NZ rimu with macrocarpa legs.
Therty years ago the the top was cut out of a benchtop to fit a sink and that offcut has been used as a kitchen chopping board till it was given to me to make something with.
The surface had therty years of cuts and dents and the edge was as it had been cut out of the bench top.
So all i did was sand the top and bottem surfaces flat and smooth and where the deepst gouge in the top was, using an angle grinder with a flappy disc i sculpted a swallow depression, then fitted four square legs at angle and then oiled.
The depression sometimes looks like it is a water bubble and attracts you to feel it to see. It was a way of leaving my fingureprint and keeping the story and history intact, and its funtional as a dish.
