This is a slice of Pistachio from the sawmill that would have been scrap. I fractal burned the pattern, filled it with turquoise powder and did a resin pour over it. It is 1” x 31” x 8” wide.

Cheers, Jim

nice save Jim – but – I think I prefer the back side, the growth pattern is really impressive

Nice One Jim,

It will look nice on a wall. The Turquoise filling that you use is very effective.

Regards,
Cliff

Very nice Jim, nice burning and filing. I also like the other side, such a nice grain. Well done. Cheers.

Great job, that pistachio is some beautiful wood. Proves the old saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

Thanks for posting

Great work. I was thinking the same thing. You could sell it to a butcher shop.

It looks like a well-marbelled steak. Great job. Now you’ve made me hungry.

Thanks for all the nice comments. the front looked very close to what you see on the back before I burned it. I chose that side because I wanted the natural edge top to slope away from the wall and not have a gap there. I thought that would look better.

Hi Cliff. It hangs right by my shop in the basement!

Hi John, I was lucky to find this piece without a crack in it. I bought a tree last year and had it cut up and almost every piece was badly cracked. This one was laying by the scrap pile from some other tree and I snagged it to my AZ shop!

Hi Tony and Mark…it does look like a steak. one that big might last 2 meals!!

cheers, Jim

That’s a lot larger than it appears in the picture. Consider it your lucky closed horseshoe. I think it’s really cool Jim.

Jim, I really like a lot of your work, but I have to say I’m not feeling this one. The fractals just look like a lot of mis-mash. I might feel differently if I saw it in person. Projects are like that sometimes. I don’t mean these comments to be ugly in any way. Best wishes.

Hi Rance. It is whatever turns your crank. I try all kinds of things and I’m sure many don’t appeal to all but I like the variety! I have burned a lot of pieces for people for their projects and some I don’t care for, but they love them so that is what counts.

Cheers, Jim
