As explained in a blog, pressed a wholes bunch of tiles a couple weeks ago. Several were of my Welcome Tile carving. I’ve made several of these tiles over the years. So many , I have 3 molds. One is nearly worn out.
Tiles are bronze coated stoneware clay with acid patina
Frames are half-lap joinery with a recently aquired technique I borrowed from the 32 panel door project posted recently. Cool door. Cool joinery. ... sort of a woven look.
Frame is made from 4/4×1.25×15 inch offcuts from a previous project.
Woven look cut with bandsaw and smooth to 50 grit with 4 inch dia osil-spindle sander.
Sanded to 80 grit.
Dark Oak dye
seedlac / buttonlac topcoat
Made a pair these this evening while Peggy was at night school.
