Making the most of natural variation
SHOP OWNER: J.M. Thompson
LOCATION: Milledgeville, GA
We had a thread a couple of weeks ago about color variations in mahogany, and here's an example of the wood I was asking about.
Project is a bed, plans downloaded from Woodsmith. The post is the dark, fancy-grain wood from Groff & Groff; the stretchers, slats, etc., are the light, straight-grained wood from my local supplier. The finish is boiled linseed oil, then orange shellac, then wax. Thanks to Jeff Jewitt for the recipe.
I really like the color variation, and my wife likes it so much I'm now trying to figure out how to incorporate it into a dresser and two bedside tables....J.M. Thompson
