During a recent kitchen revival the large gas hob cut out removed from the Beech Block worktop was left wanting a purpose. I was asked to inlay the names and signatures of everyone involved in the refitting of the kitchen.
This is the finished board with the inlaid work on one side and blank on the reverse to allow for serious chopping without damaging the named surface.
Each name is made from strips of 30 year old Honduras Mahogany formed to follow the contour of the name and sitting 3mm deep into the Beech board. The main names are filled with brass and aluminium filings set in crystal clear Counter resin to allow them to stand out from the crowd.
The board is finished with a thick Oak surround with an inset pine inner edge and ‘MANDY’S KITCHEN’ set deep into one side.
Finished size is approx 900mm x 450mm.
