Wanted to try making something different.
This is made from some scrap pine that was under my bench.
I went with a blue stain and gloss wipe on poly.
Cherry pegs.
This was a lot of fun to do and I think I’ll try some other things carved in this style.
I like practical objects with some artistic look to them.

Thanks for looking, and don’t pay any attention to the lack of stain and the lichen growing on my deck rail.

That’s pretty cool looking (the coat rack, not the deck). Where did you buy the blue stain from?

Hi Ed,

I got the blue stain at my local Home Hardware.
It’s a brand name called “Saman”, The company is based out of Quebec. Here’s their website from the bottle.
It comes in an 8 oz. bottle.
I bought some blue, red, and a yellow when they were on sale.

Not just different, but – beautiful.
I love the contrast and the waves.
Wonderful work.
