Red Ironbark kitchen benchtop
I have just finished this kitchen benchtop for my in-laws. It is made from red ironbark floorboards and finished with 7 coats of Estapol Satin Polyurethane.
A big thank to AlexS for cutting some of the long boards.

Turned out well Scott.
Looks better with the poly on it

That all looks strangely familiar to me some how..... :confused:"I don't practice what I preach because I'm not the kind of person I'm preaching to."

Love it Scott, excellent use of one of our under appreciated timbers. (of course I'd say that it's Ironbark!)Bruce C.
catchy catchphrase needed here, apply in writing to the above .

Oh I forgot to thank craigb who helped to cut the hole for the sink. And SilentC and WB for supervising.

Looks Awesome Scott! I think you're going a bit overboard though. after all it's only a playhouse
there's no school like the old school.

that is a really great benchtop. Well done. I am interested is Poly a suitable finish for a food prep surface? It is a problem I never though of before

Nice work Wongo! Don't you just love the ironbark colours!!

Your concern is unnecessary. Food should be prepared on a chopping board not on the benchtop.
Also a bit of polyU would not do any harm to your body anyway.

Looks really good Scott.
I'm not sure Darren and helped contribute to the cutting out apart from keeping your inlaws out of the way.
The finish looks good too - the whole project is a credit to you.- Wood Borer

Anyone who takes to that top with a knife should be butchered.

Looking good Wongo.

Great job and finish
Cutting definately out
Hot pots and pans out
Only big worry is teenage kids cause no matter how many times you tell them
They will cut & burn the surface
Food prep great for dough ,pastry , pasta, the only thing better is someone else making it for you
Then it doesn't taste as good but gives you more time in the shed
The trouble with life is there's no background music.
