    First project: sinkbridge

    Hi all, have been drooling over all the wonderful stuff everyone has been showing here and decided that I'd turn my hand to something a little more straightforward while I'm waiting for my first gyuto to arrive - a nice, sinkbridge. Oh, and it's my first post here, so "Hi!"

    It's made from jarrah with teak accents and aluminium spacers. The f&f is a little 'rustic' in a couple of places given I was using mainly hand tools although I bought a belt/disc sander towards the end (oh, for a drill press!)

    Anyway, on with the pics - c&c welcome!

    That's an awesome looking sinkbridge you've made there! Congratulations and welcome to KKF

    I would probably protect wood with some varnish as it may contact with water rather often. And replace screw with something like this

    Cheers guys. So far, I've finished it with Feast & Watson's "Kitchen Oil" which is basically a tung/nut oil that finishes matt. I'll be waxing it after the oil has completely dried with carnuba wax. I was hoping to find some wingnut screws like you showed but couldn't find anything locally - will keep looking because the one's I've used are bloody hard to turn! Thanks for the welcome and feedback!

    may I ask


    Looking at your beautiful work I feel shame about a piece of plank that I'm using as sinkbridge now. Gonna try making something at least half as beautiful as yours
