Just finished my latest project; an african mahogany incense burner. A much more complicated design than my last one, with a strong asian influence. I burned the bamboo leaf pattern into the top and added some gold leafing. It opens up and has two compartments: one for burning incense and the other for storage (lighter, incense). When lit, the incense smoke rises through the decorative cut-outs in the top pattern. I used Darrel Pert’s 7:4 orange to brown dye stain mixture before several coats of wipe-on poly.
I am currently trying to build up some inventory so I can try to sell some of my work later in the year.
