I worked for 22 years in the steel manufacturing sector. 11 of those years were for a trailer manufacturing company. When I left I asked them for a picture file they had of the whole crew of one of the biggest project I was involved in while working there.
I decided to make a Greene&Greene mixed with Shou Sugi Ban for the finish.
I also made a video of the build and it is on my You Tube Channel. I’ll leave a link to it below:

A wonderful video and a beautiful frame Tony. Enjoyed every minute watching you work and I learned a lot too.

Very nice frame Tommy and a super video too. I’ve never tried the torch finishing technique before but how nice your project came out has inspired me to do so.
