Oiling Recycled Oak

 Watching the sunset over the Gembrook hills after a day of fine sanding and polishing.

The first coat of oil has really brought out the life and warmth in the french oak sideboard.
The timber has such a lovely honey coloured hue.

The contrast of the light and dark with the golden flecks throughout the timber amaze me, you could just look at it forever and still spot character you hadn't noticed before.
