Students at Burton & South Derbyshire College have been put through their paces by Liberon as part of a carpentry and joinery competition. The woodcare experts called on the college's City & Guilds Bench Joinery course students to design, build and finish a side table, using Liberon's Superior Danish Oil.

Teams of three were given 15 teaching hours in total to complete the project. The winning team came up with the idea of using birch plywood to form an eye-catching four-panel upper surface for their minimalist-style table, making use of the timber's grain direction in order to define the panels. A mix of straight- and cross-grain panels resulted in a stunning but simple effect, bordered by European oak, which was also used for the table's legs.

Richard Bradley, Marketing Manager at the competition sponsors, Liberon, says: "The table designs were fabulous - a real testament to the skills of the students. We'd like to congratulate the winning team, and wish all those on the course the best of luck in their future carpentry and joinery careers."
