Someone took a huge, exquisite piece of live-edge wood (oak?) and turned it into the countertop for their kitchen island. It’s gorgeous–but does that kind of finish survive all the kinds of substances that could land on it? I have no idea and would love it if someone who knew anything about it could fill me in. Pictures #6-9.

Meantime, I finally worked out the math (for the third time), went through my stash, decided after a package arrived that I seemed to finally have what I needed for the thing and in relief that I no longer have to wait to see how the new shades work out with the previously-bought: I picked up the long-neglected start of the redwood afghan. The living tree was stumped and then so had I been. And now I could run with it.

It felt great to finally arrive at where the only thing that slowed me down was needing to give my hands a break.


*Chez: French for “at the house of,” pronounced “shay.” Also, above, a pun on smiling for the camera.

It looks like it has been varnished and meant to be used as a table. It looks like there is a thick cutting board sitting on it. You’d need lots of stools for tha piece of wood!

I would be concerned about it, but it sure is gorgeous!
