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.
