This is my latest completed project, it’s made from Maple Burl that had some natural red in areas that were starting to spalt I added some red dye and the areas that were really spalted I dyed black. I finished by adding a coat of tung oil letting it totally dry and then multiple coats of lacquer, then sanding and rubbing out that and adding polish and wax.

Said what I thought.

Looks like something you’d expect to see at the bottom of the sea. or in a drunken nightmare. But it is simply fabulous to know that is wood, and a little Voodoo. Nice work

Thanks for posting.

Thank you. And I’m not very organized as far as documentation photos but I was able to find one on my cell phone that shows it as I just started adding the dye on the left side. However I can’t seem to find a way to post it in this message apparently it needs to be online or something. PM me an e-mail and I’ll send it to you if you want.

Seeing what the piece looked like before you did your magic, shows that the beauty of this piece comes from your talent to see what the wood could become. Great job!

Sweet… I figure if I can post them, anyone can. Not being very computerific myself.

That is a lot bigger than I had imagined it. I was thinking something like 3.5×5 or so. That will make a nice wall hanging, actually if it were mine I’d see about a lexan box to cover it on the wall, so nothing untoward happened to it.
