A pot to dye for


redA friend brought me some maple and a mystery log that neither one of us could identify. I wanted to make him something for all the wood he has been bringing so I thought I would use the mystery log. Well it just happened to be some ugly wood — it made salt treated wood look good! Plus it was HARD and at this point I’m guessing locust. My work around was to dye it and I was pleased with the effect. Of course I left it it sitting on the bench (as I always do) waiting for the inspiration that only multiple Mooseheads can bring and I decided to add this little top. The top is a repurpose from an old piece of ash furniture I had build years ago and the spindle was some dyed poplar. If you click on the picture and enlarge it you can see a little ghost face in the grain! I think it is ready for the hand-off now.red2

If you bothered clicking you can see a preview of another dyeing project I am working on. This one is cherry.
