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.
