Table top

Post Number:#1  Unread postby michaels4gardens » Fri Mar 27, 2020 9:51 am


Made a yellow pine table top,
"wrapped, and aged" the planks to make them "blue",
I love "blued" pine..
Dove,[my wife] and Tia, [ my daughter] think it looks "moldy" ...
-- other opinions???

It has a nice aged look to it, but I don't see why they think it looks moldy.
“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”

Strange, I had posted a reply on this earlier today, but its apparently gone.

Anyhow, I think this is gorgeous- I love to see the different effects wood can take on!

I think that's called 'spalting', I have some wood turner friends who age their Norfolk Island pine in order to get it to have that effect. The other thing they do with it is soak it in some sort of oil to become translucent when it's turned thin, but I don't think that would work with your table top.

Lovely table, what finish did you use on it? It almost looks like shellac?
