Carved Penguin

Penguin made from a scrap of pine.  First ever attempt at carving.  Not very good!

Dining Table

Dark teak dining table, top was made from reclaimed scaffold boards from Mitchells reclamation yard in Norwich, legs made from reclaimed fence posts.

Please note I didn’t make the chairs! They are very beautiful and I was lucky to find them on eBay, apparently they were handmade from weathered driftwood and originally bought from a shop in Great Yarmouth.

Getting the dining table finish to match the chairs wasn’t easy, but with a Rustins dark teak stain and a mahogany varnish to give it a red tint was close enough for my liking.  Finished with Briwax to protect the wood

Dining Table Restoration

Dining table.  Found the table top next to some bins on a council estate, it had been painted (very badly) and the corner was broken and missing.

Restored the broken corner using a scrap and sanded the whole thing down.  

Put some new legs on it which were from wood taken from a skip (with permission).  

Finished with an oak stain, rubbed on a satin varnish with a scrap of material and finished with Briwax.  Sold to a friend though a post on Facebook.
