Well Oiled!

Well I finally got the worktop oiled and sorted now. It's iroko and still quite light in colour - I've seen some that turn almost mahogany coloured with age and light.

Anyway, it took six coats of oil in total.... Sanding and tacking off between coats, it was a bit of a nightmare to be honest but its definitely worth it as it really does look fantastic. I just have to keep it that way now - I guess that means Pav is banned from the kitchen ;)






Rob also made an extension that we can 'bolt on' to the 'bubble' (ha! Love that name - I mean the circle that curves out on the worktop).

Basically, it turns the worktop into a larger area and makes it square shaped, meaning we can have people for dinner or even cake and coffee if we want to - there's easily enough space for 4 people.

I haven't got any pictures to hand tonight but I will take some tomorrow and show you show it all works. Rob came up with the idea and did an amazing job on it as usual. We only originally wanted him to make a piece for us to add on - but he went all out as usual and fitted it for us too on some slide out supports.

There's not a lot else been happening today really. Spent most of it writing really but also managed to fit in a bit of baking - a cherry and marzipan cake.

It was really nice - perfect for a cup of coffee in the afternoon....

  1. Wow, it looks stunning. I say that about Roy and our kitchen as he always makes a mess in there whatever he makes so I prefer making everything from cups of tea, toast and baking etc......far easier that way and no arguments! Lol ;-)
