Spotted Gum kitchen island

Building a Reputation
Building a Reputation

A rustic island or butcher block made using recycled hardwood pallets with the lovely grain of Spotted Gum.





The project


This is my latest creation made using Spotted Gum recycled pallets. I have left some bumps and inconsistencies for a more rustic effect. I don't work with any plans when I'm building. I sit and look at the wood until I get an idea of how it will look once completed.




Once we update the 80s Pine kitchen, it should stand out more. Like my Spotted Gum table, I used boiled linseed oil and cabinet makers wax from Bunnings to finish.
