My first commissioned project – ‘Resin & Valleys’ – Cheese boards ,has been a journey of working with some fabulous cuts, from a Red Gum Tree and Resin for the first time. When we purchased these blocks I honestly did not want to do much to them as they already looked stunning. A fair bit of sanding, Resin filling, sanding and finally 4 coats of Danish – Food Grade Finishing Oil Later this is the Result.
I have internally left the major ridges and valleys of the blocks exposed as I wanted to leave the natural beauty of the Timber intact, and also to reduce the force or the Resin in times of expansion and contraction. I believe this piece will build its character as time passes and it is used for the multitudes of parties my friend intends to throw.
