Were going to be learning the Shades of colors that Shellac Comes in.. and ways to “age” repairs or
original work so it looks more “rested and older”...
I had to cook up batches of Orange and Garnet Shellac and prepare some (zero or near zero pored )
wood for Sunday…
I cut off a foot of Beech and Cedar and then resawed them and glued them up into bigger panels..
So were looking at beech that is 12×14 and Cedar that is about 12×10ish.
They are book matched and sanded to 320… all set for school! hoot!
So well see how it goes now…
(on a side note I got a nice 2.9 BF 5/4 Piece of Zebra wood and I am going to make my wife a jewelry box for her birthday.. Thinking Mahogany , with a thin band of that beech and the zebra in the top as a panel, and using it for the lid lift.. So it kinda melds into the zebra.. well see how it goes… (But! don’t tell her!)
Ill post it as a project when its done..
Till next week… take care
