    They never responded to my mail when I asked.
    So I might try Maple Street Timbers next time if they can meet my request.
    May be worth a look at Leroy Merlin in Greenstone.
    They have started keeping a range of "proper" wood other than pine, meranti and various manufactured boards

    That "changed" cast iron skillet now run the risk of popping out a section or the whole bottom becaude of the engraving when heated incorrectly.

    Keep in mind that a cast iron skillet is supposed to be heated slowly to ensure the heat is everywhere. If you frequently heat it fast only in the centre it start to suffer from metal fatigue and eventually it will crack a portion of the bottom or the whole.

    There is somewhere on ytube where a guy pick up his cast iron Dutch oven and the whole base with all the food inside just drops out.

    Looks very nice in any case.

    Here is Maple and Walnut combination.

    Engraving was done with a 60 degree V-bit.

    At this stage I started getting tired of trying to sand down the excess resin and decide to take a chance at running the board through the planer.
    End result was pretty good, doesn't seem like the machine battled in actual fact the resin created shavings similar to the wood.

    It's very nice! But why don't you get yourself a laser engraver for these types of jobs! I just engrave and then like on the sample here ( Key hanger ) I spray with matte clear coat!

    Interesting. You can't even tell there is resin from looking at the photo. It just looks like a black engraving.

    Haha Same, here. Almost invested in a 3D printer and laser engraver over December. But I did the sums and I wouldn’t have been able to afford the laywer fees

    Awesome work. I have two questions
    How do you do the engraving and where do you buy your wood.. I would love to get my hands on maple and walnut.

    I bought this wood from CountryWoods in Woodmead.
    I'm by no means a wood expert but I've become a bit of a snob with the wood that I prefer to work with. Maple and Walnut is right up there such nice wood to feel, touch and smell.... I'll stop now.

    The engraving I actually do on my CNC milling machine. I need to finish my DIY cnc router but just haven't had the finances to do so. Those ball screws and steppers add up quickly.
    But I saw a guy doing some mazing work on YT with a router and tracing the picture with transfer paper.

    I must go check out this place then.
    I got some small teak off-cuts from a mate once that I made toy cars out of for my son. I just absolutely love these toys, just because the wood is so nice! As you say, the touch, feel, and smell is just awesome
