I made battens today! Got a lesson in table sawing, bought a Dremel. Watched a few utubes about bending wood. Made four four battens of varying width out a wood called tarahah? I don't know something out of husbands hardwood stash I'm not supposed to touch. And they are gorgeous!



Well if your going to invade the shop, might as well go for the best wood in the stack. LOL :)



I'm not familiar with tarahah.  What does it look like?


It was just a sticker on the wood, it's spelled tarara . I think it was partially torn off. I'll post photos of the battens. It was very hard and two toned in gold, orange and dark brown. I'm kind of of dumb about these things.


It's used for floors. Brazilian, I just found out.
