« Part 5: textured, bronze and iron oxide coatings w/ acid patina then top coat Part 6 of MISSISSIPI BUD WALL HANGING series Part 7: photo blog of finished piece ... ready to ship to my MISSISSIPPI BUD »

excuse the shop table top photos. I’m not tall enough to get a square photo.

18 mortice and tenon joints. Frame is about 48×16

This is with a wet seal coat of marine spar varnish.

Tomorrow rub it down with scotch-brite and give it another coat, hit it with some Briwax, mount the hardware and mount the Mississippi.

Great choice of white oak for the frame. Color and finish are super.
