Stoneware tiles inspired by Birger Sandzen woodblock prints

Quartersawn white oak frame with blacksmith iron rivet accents

Frame is half-lap construction.

Finish is Dark Golden Oak aniline dye followed by wet sanded jazzed-up Minwax red mahogany oil stain. After it dried I applied a coat of right-out-of the-can spray lacquer to seal it in. Followed by multiple coats of french polish Seedlac shellac. Topped off with a couple coats of dark brown paste wax.

One of my larger wall pieces, this one is 44 inches wide.

Very cool Dan! The corner joinery looks great. It looks like you are missing a rivot on the 3rd section from the left on the bottom? Well done

This is so impressive that it forced me to sign in! “wet sanded jazzed-up Minwax red mahogany oil stain”. I really like it, and will have to try that someday.

Fantastic Dan!

Man I really like the “crosses and rivets” that tie the corners together.

Hey hooky … stoneware is a type of clay body that when fired in a potters kiln turns into durable hard ceramic

The bronze finish is another process …here is a link to a blog I did last year that explains the processing

Nice work Dan, reminds me of a bed frame foot board, can only imagine what the head board would look like.
