« Part 4: in wood and and another frame design idea Part 5 of MISSISSIPI BUD WALL HANGING series Part 6: quartersawn white oak, sapele frame »

first photo is with the bronze and iron oxide patinated coating. If this was an interior piece I’d be done

finished piece with uv marine spar varnish and a matt top coat … still need to make the frame

lee valley bronzed screws. sitting outside this piece will age beautifully.

Outstanding. I absolutely love the finish. That HAD to be the exact look you were going for. Really impressive.

Metallic finish and screws make it perfect. I’d go very simple on the frame- hardly needs anything.
