salt and wood

Re use it or lose it

This is the second condiments board created from a piece of driftwood. This one was generated from a length of hardwood ply recovered from Yarra Bay (refer picture 1 foreground). The ends have been clean cut but the edges retain their organic character formed from the action of sun and sea. I Also added the finger hole and apart from the general sanding and varnishing process an additional area was sanded across the base to take the Item 14 stamp. The base side seems like it had some sort of laminate over it. You can see some little rubber feet have been added to create the shadow line under the whole piece.  There is an interesting array of nicks and crush marks over the piece. Especially the Y shaped mark on the right side of the top surface from some unknown event.
