Tuning my bandsaw I ended up with some 1//8” resawn pine. What to do with it? This is the result. Wife hates it because she thinks it looks too much like “country style” what ever that is.
I’am asking your opinion.

Looks “wood style” to me. Depends on it’s surrounding furniture and decor. Looks like a nice job making it.

I saw lot of wooden stuff here on LJ, but wooden lamp, I would call it very brave.Whichever style it is looks fine to me.

I was reading another post here and this fella refers to his wife as: SWMBO … She Who Must Be Obeyed.
Might be a clue here.

I like it but if the wife don’t like it well it has to go. Now what to do with it see if one of the in laws like it. It never hurts to be on in laws good side.

Save yourself years of misery now and listen to the wife. I like it so just move it out to the shop and use it there or give it as a gift to the monther-in-law ;-)

I disagree….if you like it then why should it go. How about this….a compromise. She can “remove” it, provided you can find something of hers that you don’t care for, that can be “removed”.

But as you can guess, I’m single.

The question is, if it were thinner could you see light through it? I was thinking about making one out of veneer, I’m not sure how much finish would be required for strength.

I think that if you use epoxy as a glue and finish you would be fine. That way you would be able to see light through it.

I think it is a wonderful idea, and a fine job done.
For the design… I have no words on that, if she don’t like it use it in the workshop and thereby make sure the quality of supper stays fine.
Best thoughts,

Let your wife design a piercing pattern. She will love it. But I like it as it is.
