I have some wormy cherry that was passed to me years ago and I finally decided to use it. Rather than cut out the “ugly” worm holes and streaks I decided to combine with some of what I think is Bettle Kill Pine. The legs are 3 strips of slats from a pallet laminated and the strips on the surface are the 2×4 runner sized to mate with the cherry.
This was quite a lot of fun putting together because of the horrendously trashy appearance. It turned out so unattractive that I really took a sincere liking to it and will probably end up using it for a plant stand.
The dimensions are 22 inches high, 25 1/2 inches long and the top is 10 inches wide.
I was surprized to find 4 different colors in the poine – orange, purplish black, the pine white and several magenta streaks.
Please feel free to reinforce my thoughts on it’s “ugly” appearance and thanks for looking
