Menu Board

Oak slab menu board for The Blackbird Cafe in Bucklebury. With Letterpress inserts printed with a mixture of wood type. 

It took alot of hard but enjoyable work to get what was an old forgotten slab of oak to a final finished surface...the wood had been left outside for ten years in a retired timber merchant's yard. 
I planed it by hand, then sanded and waxed it to finish. Its not a perfect piece of timber but it has bags of character.
