Had this log sitting in my firewood stack, it looked more like art than fire to me, so i busted out the echo and made some sawdust. The red was accomplished by using several coats of keda red,and one light coat of keda brown. Its finished in a 30/70 mix of Helmsman Spar Urethane and mineral spirits.
