Here are a few project updates for my new woodworking projects this year. I tried to make a few new ideas including a burning log lamp and wood sided bags. I hope you enjoy the update!
This is a Shou Sugi Ban charred cedar breakfast table with white pine trim and metal hairpin legs. Shou Sugi Ban is a Japanese style of wood finishing involving charring cedar wood planks in order to protect the wood from insects, weather, and fire and providing a unique dark look to the wood which contrasts nicely with the light pine surround.
In preparation for upcoming Art Shows which I will be attending this month (in Little Falls September 9-10 and Crosslake September 30th), I have just finished two additional Lake Superior Rock and Agate Resin Coffee/End Tables, one with Black Walnut wood and the other, most likely, with Cottonwood. In this post, I have also included photos of some of my fan wood-burns from LoTR and GoT inspired Minnesota.
