This is from some Walnut I scored from a wind fall pile on a corner after a storm last year. It’s about 4” tall and 5” diameter. I did a basket weave pattern via a pyrography pen and painted it with Geso paint. I finished it with two coats of MinWax wipe on Polly.

Thanks for looking…

That is really cool, I love the texture and color contrast.

Thanks for showing.

Very different, and unique, I like it.
