Growler Tote for a friend. 1/4 sawn red oak with Watco Medium Walnut oil finish. Then 5-6 coats of a wipe on mixture of 50% poly semi gloss and 50% mineral spirits. Wipe on, wipe off with a dry rag. Knock it down with 0000 steel wool or 400 grit wet dry sandpaper between coats. The carving was done with my CNC. The beer mug was antique white and a pickeling stain.
Kind of made it up as I went along, no plan to follow. Thanks to a number of LJ’s out there for design ideas. When I saw something I liked I shamelessly copied it in the design.
Going to give it to a friend who home brews and his label is 16th Fairway since he lives on a golf course. My hope of course is after I give it to him the next time he comes over he has it along with full growlers ;-)
