A couple more projects got finished today. The first one is an Ambrosia Maple serving tray for chips and dip that has been fractal burned on the inside. I made the mistake of trying to sand it on the lathe with all the black ash in there and it got into the fibers of the wood . So I took a skin cut on the inside to clean it up and a lot of the fine burned patterns were taken away. I left the deep burned grooves that seemed to really light up no matter where I put the electrodes…...... as shown here:
It is finished with lacquer on the outside and Watco Butcher Block Finish on the inside and then 3 stage buffed and waxed all over.
The other piece is a small pendant that I cut out of the scrap pistachio wood ( last photo) that I was throwing out. I wanted to see how it would look in that shape. It is finished with Danish oil and then 3 stage buffed and waxed.
