Tom’s board that give a 3D affect. The boards (only one of which is shown) are made up of several pieces glued together to create the effect of wooden blocks sitting on top of each other.
In fact the board is completely flat. Each block has been carefully cut so that each joint fits together seamlessly.
The timbers used were Cedar, Pacific Maple and Pine.
They have been finished in oil which has brought out the deep colours of the timbers which are all end-grain.
This item, by Roger, is a Bonsai Display Table, 800mm x 300mm. It has 70mm square legs, a 90mm deep skirt made from pine and with the top formed from a finger jointed bed frame in the wood store. All the timber is biscuit joined and the tops of the legs are raised slightly for effect. It has a sprayed lacquer finish.
