Another pair of trays/tidies. If you've been watching the videos I made last week then you've seen these before (if not, go watch them now to see some of the process!)

Slightly more traditional shape to these than the blocky designs I've made recently, and I really like them. Hand carved texture to the top and the underside, bevel shaped with kanna. The black finish is made by scorching the timber with a blowtorch after shaping.

Made a bamboo oil pot, or 'aburatsubo' on the weekend.

Yeah, I could have just made a Paul Sellers style rag in a can, but there's something neat about using bamboo like this.

The finished product from one of my reels posted last week, a couple dishes in ash. 

Finish on the left was made by scorching the wood with a blowtorch after shaping, the one the right is just natural. Both finished with a beeswax/walnut oil blend. 

I like the result! The scorching leaves a super deep black finish, with a bit of texture in the undulations between growth rings. It softened out the tool marks a little more than I'd like, but it's still nice and dramatic.

My battered stovetop pot

This is actually my second bialetti pot, I once forgot to put water in the first and also somehow forgot it was on the hob, came back half an hour later to find the handle had melted off 😬

Ah/beech tray with hand carved surface, recently completed. Would love to do another, DM me to comission!

Anyone for coffee? 

Since making this coffee table I've been a lot more precious about ring marks and coasters ect, so though I'd do something about it! 

Hand carved ash board sits on beech feet, joined with a simple housing joint.
