A grounding object in measured proportions, articulating only the basic conditions that define a long wearing butchers block -  end grain timber en mass. The work surface of tightly knit Beech is continued through the legs preferring no language other than that which is suggested. Amplifying the monolithic output of this island bench, a low mesh shelf sits in contrast to the surrounding weight as delicately as timber will allow.
