Well this is probably old news now, but I wanted to show my latest project using the techniques I learned here.
I made this cutting board out of maple with purple heart edges. Then carved the grapes from the Aspire disc.
I then did the cleanup sanding. Applied two coats of sanding sealer. I wanted to leave some 'tooth' to the wood. I then painted with acrylic paint. It took two coats of paint to get the proper shading. I then highlighted the grapes and leaves with a wet towel and 600grit sand paper. I let it dry for 24 hours then finished with two coats of lacquer.
It is 10x17" x 1" thick. The other side was left raw and then I used mineral oil and let it soak in. This goes in a 9' hutch with wine and wine glasses. I hope to finish the hutch up this week, but thought this turned out well enough to show.
Again thanks for the tutorial, I keep coming up with ways to use it. Learning from others is much cheaper than teaching your self.
