This will be a Christmas present for my brother and his wife who just bought their first home in Seattle. The padauk is 1/8” thick, edge-glued together from three pieces after cutting the skyline. I used the Frasier logo as my reference. A small strip of red oak on the back gives something for the hooks to screw into and something to mount hanging hardware on.
I originally had finished the padauk with a few coats of wipe on poly, but when waxed and buffed it became evident that the thin coat of poly had not cured, even after a week of drying. I think this has to do with padauk’s natural oiliness. So, stripped off the poly and applied the wax by itself and it looks great.
