I am getting ready for future shows. Playing around with different wood combinations. The first is a quartersawn Sycamore Box with a top of Ash Crotch bordered by Fiddleback Walnut. The Sycamore and Ash came from Teaberry in Indiana. The second box is Canarywood. The top has a small border of Jotoba. The third box is Maple Burl with a top of Elm Burl bordered by Redwood Burl. The first 2 boxes are about 9”x6”x6”. The third is 6”x6”x6”. All with a wash of BLO and two coats of Watco Danish Oil. The Canarywood didn’t take the second coat very well. The wood seemed to have its own natural oil. I have finished 8 out of 19. I did not wear a respirator when applying the oil and my lungs said to take a break!!
