This monster desk is made from 30mm thick by 150mm wide pieces of tassie oak laminated together to create a desk 700mm wide. The legs have been 'box joined' to the top creating a fantastic constrast of end grain and top grain. The draws have all been dovetailed (on my awsome new dovetailing JIG), the handles have been simply routed out and really suit the piece, nothing is overwhelming about the desk everything just sits together perfectly and the whole piece stands out as opposed to one aspect being the focus.

This Butchers block is made from Tassie Oak and measures 1100 x 880h x 550w. The top is made from offcuts from the work shop making sure everything gets recycled, i created the top pattern to break up the solid/unvaried colour of the tassie oak I think it really brings the top to life and makes is a center piece of a kitchen.

The jarah piece was specifically selected as it had heaps of character with some burls and pretty crazy grain patterns going on,the finish is a high gloss varnish when light hits the 2 different timbers it really lights up and looks amazing.
