salt and wood

Re use it or lose it

This outstanding slab of Eucalyptus was retrieved from a skip bin in Newtown on the way home from a run. Screws and batons removed from what was probably some sort of mantle. Holes plugged with yellow crayon wax. After it was all sanded back the top was oiled to make it a suitable food serving surface and the ends, sides and base were varnished. The stamp located on the top side was varnished to protect it by use of a template cut out of cardboard and taped down to get a clean shaped edge. The rubber feet were salvaged from an old wooden rocking hoarse that itself was an earlier restored street salvage that was finally toddlerised to death. This guy is truly the Hawaiian long-board of cheese and crackers.
