I started putting together the end panels which will hold up the counter top. Using some rebated timber I made up two, three part frames.These both hold two spalted beech boards.
These boards all have one waney edge which makes a little feature in the centre of each panel . These wide boards also give the ends a lot of strength.
I decided to cut a little semi circle out of the front edges to relieve knee's from getting knocked on the corner this also gives a little organic geometry to the straight lines of the end panels.
A little bit of progress this weekend, and hopefully some dry weather next weekend so I can take it outside and put it together and turn it the right way up, as theres no room in the shed to do this but I like a challenge:)
