Re: Burned wood

Love that look , if I had a tiny home or cabin I'd do all or any doors on tracks instead of hinges , beautiful and functional all in one , plus no swinging door is a plus in my books

experimenting on rough timbers for the desk / chair

Rough sawn lumber from my mill , salvaged from a burned area , solid , but worm holes which I think add character , some like , some don't

Re: Burned wood

Well Imanaged to get all the wood burned and stained / sealed ...........so starting tomorrow with painting trim / doors / windows and then walls

http://i1109.photobucket.com/albums/h423/09151960/IMG_3089_zpsvia7wenq.jpg

The sealer gives it a smokey look , shows the colors well , but no shine to create glare

Lighting again gives it a different effect , it is darker then it looks , the first picture is more actual

A tinge of blue as per request

Four part process ,,,,,,Burn as desired , add any color other then the stain color , I wouldn't use stain because it does just what it's name say's .....I use a pastel latex artist paint , put on where u want and wipe off ., the longer u leave it on the darker it gets as it absorbs into the wood grain , then I used a a ebony stain ( black ) and wiped it off .....stain goes over the whole piece , painted areas included , then I used a prime sealer which sounds wrong ,but basically a sealer that goes over anything , then you could paint / stain or what ever on top of it , but I used it to get away from any glare , gives wood a dull natural look

Re: Burned wood

Beautiful. I love wood carving and woodburning. :thumbsup: There is so much character.

Here is a sign that I did to hang for my daughter's jewelery store if she ever does a craft sale. I was going to help her build a simple light log entrance and gate (ranch style) to bring people to her booth. We have the trees peeled for some of it but still need to complete the gate. They are raw wood right now (nothing done other than peeling) and fairly smooth. The woodburning as you did your wood would look interesting, but I it would probably only work on  boards I bet. I wonder if I could work that idea into some other part.

Re: Burned wood

What a lot of work, but it sure gives the wood depth and character! I think it looks amazing.

Depends on the wood , green being something that would battle u if not the right kind , dead trees with no bark ( pine ) is very nice to work with , have plans for building a Hobbit themed shed , solid timbers for the walls , funky roof lines , and oval windows and door , want to try my hand at making cedar shakes for it ? Been looking at floor designs as well as the actual floor coverings , thinking cut rounds of wood inlaid with a mortar ? Gotta do some research on that ....... Build it and maybe sell it ? Daddy needs a Harley ... Lol . What kind of wood U working with ? Used to do the wood engraving in my younger years

Re: Burned wood

I have no idea what the sign was, just a scrap piece laying around. The poles that we peeled are poplar.

I really enjoy pulling the draw knife down the length of the logs. It gives such a satisfying feeling. I like the feel of the fresh, cold, wet wood and the beautiful smell that it gives. So nice. I find it very relaxing.

If I could make a living doing that, I would be happy. :thumbsup:

Re: Burned wood

Poplar as a norm has not a lot of defined grains so it would be hard to do anything with it as far as burning goes .I watched a documentary years ago where the had been depositing a ? forget what it actually was ? will say a soluble pigment around trembling aspen which were slated for cutting further down the road which when harvested had actually given the wood a different color ? The had used a red I recall , wood had a pinkish red color . Poplar is used in furniture building and further south it's applications are more varied then here where it is primary use is firewood and the bigger white poplar is used in log home construction . Otherwise you can use any wood that has a defined grain .......they all have a uniqueness about them

Re: Burned wood

I didn't figure poplar would work. I never did see any defined grains as you said. Oak could look nice, though. Maple is pretty. Do you think it would work?

Re: Burned wood

Maple / Birch / Poplar are all dense wood that has a beautiful finish to it due to it"s density , but the grain   is missing , it's there but so tight due to the trees slow growth in some instances , and some don't have that characteristic defined grain . Unless you find a old standing dead poplar which has weathered to the point of having raised wood ......only way . Beech has a slight grain , but as in furniture production ( done this ) you stain and then use steel wood to in a way highlight the very light grains ......done a lot in furniture to give it some life . If you want a baby bottom smooth wood finish then stick with Poplar / Birch / Maple / Beech / even cedar , but this wood has both characteristic's ,smooth finish , defined grains .......................all about what the outcome is
