so here is my newest creation. it’s a clarsach stand. considering i only get to do maybe 3 hours a week building things, it still took way too long; the finish itself took over a month to finish! the woods are: walnut, padauk and figured birch/beech (i can never remember what i bought). the finish is basically the same from the “pop the grain” episode over at the woodwhisperer. although, i had to do some mixing of the transtint dyes to get a decent color. i’ll prob’ly rub the piece with some paper bag to cut down on some of the shine though. hope ya’ll enjoy it.
