Trio of reclaimed Grueby seafoam green geometric tiles framed in quarter sawn white oak Arts and Crafts Style PINWHEEL frames

each frame is 22 inches on diagonal.

All three frames were made from the same 12×48x 5/4 board. The pinwheel design kind of grew out my imagination on my work bench and the 12 identically sized cut pieces .. 4×16 inchers.

Finishing sequence is first sanding to 180 grit.

Then a brush a strong coat of dark golden oak alcohol dye ,

Jazzed up a mixture of Minwax red mahogany oil stain with a splash of Japanese dryer.

Brush a thick coat of Oil stain and then lightly wet sand in with scotchbrite.

Let dry.

Brush on two and a half coats of seedlac shellac

let dry

paste with scotchbrite

Dan A great set of frames.

But do have a technical question. I was wondering how you put on 1/2 coat of seedlac shellac. The 2 coats I can understand, but the 1/2 coat has me puzzled.

hey Karson … I’m going to have-to keeping the 1/2 coat as a trade secret >grin< ... but the first coat is a real thin coat to seal everything up. I follow it with a little thicker coat and so-on….. firsrt one then the 2nd … <grinzz><

Thanks again guys … you-are-the-best

So the first 1/2 coat is for the inside and the other two coats are for the outside.

Am I paraphrasing that right? <grinning>
