As we begin work on a variety of slabs and planks featuring cracks, splits, and checks it seemed like it would be a fun idea to post this project as it features a unique method of stabilizing a crack.
I made a simple rustic plank display shelf to hang at Willard Brother’s lumber for a display to sell Renaissance Wax. As is the usual trend these days – my partner Mike took a look at the piece and rambled about something to do with lace work and let’s make this more interesting so everyone who walks into the office at the lumber yard HAS to stop and look at it.
So he went to work and did a unique lacework pattern across the crack! Turned out pretty cool, we stocked it with wax and it has definitely attracted some attention.
Stay tuned, there will be some very unique butterflies, stitches, lacework, and other features pending in our upcoming summer projects!
