This is another chips and salsa dish that was fractal burned with vinegar and baking soda.. It is made from mesquite and I reduced the size a bit so there was no sap wood in the top. It is finished with Danish Oil all over and the back was buffed and waxed . The top inside was further finished with Watco Butcher Block Finish… so it is food safe. I added a couple shots of the burning process.

cheers, Jim

Did someone say chip and salsa? Nice looking dish Jim. I would have to build one twice that big to satisfy my taste buds.

Thanks for all the nice comments!!

Hi Bambi, the beer was with me behind the camera!!!

Hi Dave, you just fill it often!!

Hi Pete. It finished at 9” x 1 1/2 “high. I had to turn off the sap wood and it got smaller than I would have liked but it can be filled several times before all the beer is gone!!

Cheers, Jim

Very nice Jim, you are getting great reaction from your Baking Soda mixes, I will have to experiment when I light mine up.

Great job on the burning, we here in BC have a ban on all fires, over 500 forest fires, will have to wait for winter to try out the burning process again. Fines ore over 1000$ for a out door fire.
