“Warmth of Wood” hand carved wooden stand.

Dimensions:
Diameter: 12 cm (4,72”), thickness: 1,5 cm (0,59”).

This natural basswood stand is carefully hand-carved by me. To protect the wood and increase its longevity, I apply Danish oil – a naturally derived finishing oil – to the completed wooden stand, which gives it a beautiful long-wearing, water-resistant, satin finish.

I love your carvings. They are always so beautiful and original and quite different from the usual type of patterns we often see. It isn’t easy to be original in the woodworking world, but you seem to have accomplished that.

I’m not sure about Danish oil being being all natural as it is my understanding that Danish oil contains resins like the ones used in polyurethane to make it more durable and protective. This might be just semantics though as these resins are surely made up of natural products, but perhaps not so natural when combined. I do like Danish oil and I use it a lot as it looks great and is also easy to refinish if the need should arise.

The repeating band on the perimeter of the plate is especially intriguing. Congratulations on a fine job… designing AND carving.
