I was working some River Birch and at the end of my cutting a board I took a closer look at the remaining cut-off. I figured it looked either like a whirlpool or a space galaxy. I decided on the whirlpool. An art piece was staring back at me. I sanded it to 220, then applied three coats of turquoise dye, sanding lightly between coats. The grain is really impressive and the finish is almost pearl. Gave it to my daughter to hang in her room. She is a fellow ocean lover.
Dyed, finished with wipe-on poly and hand rubbed paste wax. Thanks for viewing.
