The sunset tonight while I was sanding another piece of “desert driftwood.”
Doesn’t look like much now, but it’s going to be a lamp base. This is cleaned and sanded, but not oiled.
What a difference a little oil can make in dry wood! This is only the first coat of tung oil. I didn’t make much effort to get it into the crevasses yet. I’ll do another coat or two tomorrow, and drill holes for the wiring.
