This was a piece of wood that was on top of a rock pile for around 30 years. It’s not driftwood because it was never in a body of water. I call it rainwood because after being on a rock pile for a long time the rain has shaped it into it’s current form. I spent around 15 hours of hand sanding and made a barn wood base. The base is a piece of barn siding with some maple inlays for decoration and structural stability.

It’s called Kanagawa because it reminded me of the famous Kanagawa tidal wave painting. The base is a silhouette of that painting. The entire piece is finished with several coats of tung oil.

Sometimes you just have to listen while the wood talks to you, very nice way of showing what the wood is
doing. Thank you for sharing.
