With more help from my big dad man, more time has been put into a/the reverse flame-bursted (actual fire is planned) wood scratch guard; with more specific-needs power tools. I'm just now thinking the even smaller oil particles from tung oil wouldn't actually prevent a physical pick scratching as efficiently as the ABS sheets, nitrate cellulose something whatever the olden days stuff was, or solid clear coatings would; soaking a better penetration depth. So I believe if I stain and then toast, or toast and then stain. I'll need to end up with one of these wood pieces clear coated with a solid bonding material. Urethanes of some sort. I play 4 string extra length scale basses already with pick/claw grip methods. The body and neck project will keep the tung oil idea for finish I originally had. The 4 string and 5 string brass nut slots arrived in the mail today as well. Just final scoring and finish sanding on the headstock before preparation for body staining is started. Scrap woods prepare yourselves for a staining! (Water based aniline powder stain) (/u\); #5string #basswood #bass #goootar project is still #slowgoing Like it should be.

Cherry Nilla and Big Ol' strawberry melomel. I think cherry is almost ready for bottles and the strawberry needs to be racked onto more strawberries. #orangblossom #basswood #Mead #sweetbabyjesus

“Underwater Koi Fish”
I just love how this piece turned out!!! By far one of my longest. It was also my first attempt at 3D Art with epoxy and my first mixed mediums piece (stainer and acrylic). The outline of the koi fish and the water was originally done in Coral and Vintage Aqua stainer (fitting names, amirite??). Then I went in with acrylic paint to fill in the fish, add shade and shadow, and the refracted light off the water. The lotus and bubbles are really where the 3D comes in. I painted the shadow of the lily pad and lotus petal tips, along with the first set of bubbles, on the wood—then sealed and epoxied. On that first epoxy layer I painted in the lily pad, the water ripples, and the “surface” bubble. Added another flood coat of epoxy then painted the lotus. And finally one more epoxy layer to seal the lotus in too. WHEW! ALOT OF WORK 😅
But a beautiful result!!! :) 💕
Total time: 7h 25min

I may focus on hand tool woodworking but happy to have my 220v apprentice when it comes to surfacing lots of material! Thirty-five board feet of Basswood surfaced to a uniform 1 1/2" thickness. Destined to become 5 picture frames for Tim Rees at Rees Atelier. #woodworksbyjohn #reesatelier #custompictureframing #basswood #powermaticplaner #hybridwoodworking

This beautiful Hummingbird Pyrography Artwork has been stained now and is up in my shop. 🤗🔥💕 The link to my shop is in the bio...
I have been asked what is the wood I used in this particular piece...This wood is a beautiful Basswood...Basswood is a fabulous wood to burn on and if you are looking for some, you can get wonderful pieces at your local craftstore. The company @walnuthollow sells a variety of sizes and they even have wood burn kits you can purchase if you are interested in giving woodburning a try...
It is a ton of fun! 🤗🔥

When I can't think of anything to carve there's always my little guys 😛

This isn’t aligned. It’s enough to throw this whole model out of wack. This is tedious! #modelbuilder #architecture #myjob #basswood #bobsglue #woodworking #stickbuilding #models #model #pdx #pnw
