When one of my sons-in-law died in an accident 12 years ago, I retained timber from his favourite desk (the mottled pieces, do not know the species). I have found a use for them here and made this for my daughter for her birthday. The other blocks are cut from 40-year air-dried 5”x4” Messmate, an Aussie hardwood and the edge is Silky Oak. Oiled with many coats of Tung and sanded with 1200 grit between coats.

Thanks everyone. Very satisfying when Larry is impressed. More lazy susans in design stage but want to do a cheese-board of map of Australia in Jarrah with a Jarrah knife with a flame-hardened edge next.
