Very interesting. I've used the scorch-and-wire-brush technique on my routered trim. The secondary application of water(?) and another round of heat is interesting. That really evens out the tonal quality of the lumber. I've only done this with pine boards, so plywood may well react very differently.

Morning!

Well other than nerving myself up to burn the Treasure Chest for Sho Shugi ban and then do inlays I am waiting for chest hardware I ordered.

I need more props for the Pirate bar so I wanted something that's Tiki without being Tiki to start.

Settled on Legend of Zelda's Majora's Mask.

Take one image blown up to the right size...had to make a run to Office Depot to get that.

Add a Nicely planed piece of wood.

Carbon paper

Lots of tracing

TA DA! Image transferred.



What it's supposed to look like ( We will see how much I balls it up) :

Started making Pirate Tiki Torches.


Also made a sharpening Stone box for my sharpening stone.



Used Sho Shugi ban on the Pirate Chest then applied Tung Oil. Now waiting on the chest Hardware and finishing up the pirate Skull carving for the front.

Stained the Skull Tiki Torches with wood stain.
The glue has set so will cut away the cable ties.

Did some more work on the Deck. Decided to Sho Shugi Ban the whole deck.
First couple of planks done. I think sho shugu ban looks better for the deck than just cedar staining.


Doing the fence too.

Very nice! I agree that the sho shugu ban gives the wood a greater degree of color variation and visual texture. You're going to have the nicest deck in a hundred mile radius!

More Sho Shugi Ban planking for the deck.


The Beckets came in for the Pirate Chest. Now to make a pair of Walnut Eyebolts and leather chafing sleeves for the beckets.

Also did some more work on the chest's brass inlay


Just sitting here now, carving the eyebolts and jamming to OK GO and Led Zeppelin.

I'm interested to see how Majora's Mask turns out there I've been toying with the idea of making a couple "Tiki masks" based on the face paint of a couple Samoan wrestlers in Japan... "Tiki" but not exactly

The woodwork's coming along great. Progress may be slow, but you're going to be so happy that you stuck it out once it's finished.

OK Go and Zep are a heck of a combo. Can't say as I've ever thought to pair them, although I like both.
