I have a new baby boy coming any day now, and my wife has been working on his room. She wanted me to make something slightly rustic out of wood, and suggested we leave it natural as she knows that is my preference, but usually likes to use paint. Happily, I agreed to use some of the walnut I had purchased several years ago for cheap as it had knots in it.
I planed it down to 1/2”, glued it up on three slats, sanded to 220 and then finished with walnut oil. She went with a nautical theme and wanted a world map. She was able to get a vinyl silhouette, which we used as an outline to paint the map and text.
