Couple framed tiles for sale on eBay. Getting allot of watchers, more then in years ..29 on the acorn and 55 on the welcome tile. so I’m expecting a fun ending … check them out if you want to …. it might be fun … normal is 15 to 20 watchers
Frames are quatersawn white oak with Dark Golden Oak Aniline Dye and Walmart Min-wax Red Mahogany jazzed up oil stain. Rubbed with steel-wool and then a few coats of Delft spray lacquer followed by Seedlac and paste wax.

the fruit looks like the acorn of a holm oak (quercus) .aqui in my people there are many of these trees, I believe that your works would stay very well with this wood, it is not very brilliant but it is hard and a nobleman, congratulations…..el fruto parece la bellota de una encina (quercus),aqui en mi pueblo hay muchos de estos arboles,creo que tus trabajos quedarian muy bien con este tipo de madera,no es muy brillante pero es dura y noble,enhorabuena.

Best of luck on those!

They should attract attention, great, interesting works of art, applied.

Your tree scenes are cooler though.
