Chopping block

After find my butchers block had terminal rot after some pretty bad treatment from myself I decided to make my next one.

As luck would have it I had a lump of dry spalted beech which was just about the right size.

After an hour on the bandsaw mill it was transformed into an 8" thick block 2' x 3' 2"& a 3" & 1" thick slabs that I will turn into a table top & I'm not quite sure yet.











I have not treated the block yet. The golden colour was just from wetting it down after sanding it.

That's a lovely chunk of wood, it's going to be a good looking table.
