new from old

We have had 3 old school work benches hanging round our house for a couple of years now, and I've always sworn that I would do something with them. Well, now I have. Yesterday I took the tops to a local joinery and had them chopped into 9 10x10" blocks. They were also planed to leave a smooth surface and I have to say, they look wonderful. It is apparently Iroko wood and the grain is gorgeous. My plan is to mount photos on them to sell at a local selling show - Box of Delights - in November. I hope I can do them justice.


  1. These are gorgeous, Janet! I can't wait to see the finish product.

    I'm working on the same sort of project, but sadly, I'm not as far along as you, nor do I have such beautiful wood.


  2. I'd love to see what you do with them!
