This is another item for the upcoming craft show. It is a fractal burned osage orange serving tray with an Oriental flavor. The burned area was inlaid with azurite blue inlay and then the whole item was covered with pour on epoxy resin.

It is 3/4”x 12” x 18”. The back is finished with clear gloss lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

It is sold!

It is a great looking tray Jim. It should be well welcomed. I see your getting into pouring resin. I’ve been thinking about it.

Thank you all for the nice comments!!

Hi Mads, this one was on fire big time to burn in those deep grooves. I only wish I had a picture of it in the making. The flames were 6” high!!

Hi Dave. I have another pour project just completed today!

Cheers, Jim

Should bring a lot of attention at the show Jim. Nice piece.
There might even be references to “Chinese” and “oriental” in comments 22 and 23. ;)

Beautiful piece!

Confusing… “The burned area was inlaid with azurite blue inlay and then the whole item was covered with pour on epoxy resin.”

Isn’t the whole area BURNED? I see a portion “blue”... but, that is NOT “the burned area”...

You burned out the overall area using your Electricity High Voltage method, right?
... part of it was Inlaid with the Blue?

Very beautiful piece!!

What kind of Pour-on Epoxy did you use?

Are you in AZ now… during the COLD Winter?

Thank you!
