Our week in Wales was nice Here039;s some videos of rocks and also a seal 🦭
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Another pair of trays/tidies. If you039;ve been watching the videos I made last week then you039;ve seen these before (if not, go watch them now to see some of the process!) Slightly more traditional shape to these than the blocky designs I039;ve made recently, and I really like them. Hand carved texture to the top and the underside, bevel shaped with kanna. The black finish is made by scorching the timber with a blowtorch after shaping.
Are you photo number 1 or 2? I039;m probably a 2 aspiring to be a 1 💩
The finished product from one of my reels posted last week, a couple dishes in ash. Finish on the left was made by scorching the wood with a blowtorch after shaping, the one the right is just natural. Both finished with a beeswax/walnut oil blend. I like the result! The scorching leaves a super deep black finish, with a bit of texture in the undulations between growth rings. It softened out the tool marks a little more than I039;d like, but it039;s still nice and dramatic.
Another shot of the ash trays/tidies Proving you can still be messy with a tidy #woodworking #woodcarving #furniture #Design #furnituredesign #designermaker #furnituremaker #Interiors #photography #productphotography #joinery #finewoodworking #detail #designdetails #madeinbristol #usefulthings #wabisabi
