Burn Pile Buffet–Part 2… Using Stain to Make Artwork!

Next is the fun part. You may not know this about me, but I love to draw with charcoal. I love the shading, and the instant gratification of seeing a masterpiece unfold before your eyes. I can’t draw a person to save my life… but I can shade, yo! I get an inordinate amount of joy from coming up with new ways to make furniture (or a room) unique and beautiful. If you’ve ever stained something before, you know that the longer you leave stain on the wood, the darker the finish will be when you wipe it off. With that in mind, I started with the center petals and stained each petal, starting at the center and working my way out toward the tip of the petal.

As you can see I didn’t stain all the way out to the edge of the petals, because I wanted that to be the lightest portion of my ‘shading’. Are you so inspired? UPDATE!

Finishing a Butcher Block Cutting Board

Probably because we are all making holiday gifts. Either way, this is the time of year you can expect almost one forum post a day asking a question about cutting board finishes or “food safe” finishes. And the responses to these posts are nearly always the same: Person 1- The best finish for a butcher block is mineral oil. Person 2- NEVER use varnish or salad bowl finish on a cutting board! What are you, stupid?!?! Ok so I am generalizing here for fun, but you get the picture. I recommend diluting the finish sufficiently so that it immediately gets absorbed into the wood’s wide open pores. Klingspor's Woodworking Shop.
