The boys are back on the job!  Yay!
Ryan and Andy were right back into it today – working more magic to produce a stunning jarrah box frame around our central beam – to hide it and the electrical conduit next to it. 
I am quite liking that our home will have character and show itself for what it really is – so it feels a bit strange to be boxing in a pine LVL and making it look like it is solid jarrah – but it is way too pretty not to really and I will let everyone know it is a fakery.
I got some recycled Jarrah floorboards for this job – lots of character according to Ryan (= not straight, a few holes and splits, some leftover nails  ;-) – oh but look at how pretty they sand up (that was my weekend job):


And this (the boards on the right) is just a light sand, imagine how gorgeous it will look with a nice coat of wood oil:

Oh, I do love it a lot!!
And bonus – the smell of freshly sawn recycled jarrah is scrumptious.
