I really like the finish! Don’t know about the choice of liquids as I can’t make them out on my phone.

Well done Stef!

By the way, I prefer beer in a can. I’ll send you my address.

Whoa, that grain! Not sure about the one in the cans though, but I’ll let you be the judge! ;)

Nice job, I like how the dye took, looks like ripples in the water. Anyone would be stoked at such a fine gift!

I had no idea what you meant when you said you were “trying to cram 6 in”. I get it now. That dye is a showstopper. The comments are TL;DR, so what kind of dye did you use and what solvent? I saw these at TJMaxx for $4. You could really be on to something. Do the math, nutwhip.
