Wood Changing Color With Age

3년 전

Back in December I turned a little bowl from a branch of African Sumac that I found. Fresh cut, the wood is really pale. The bowl has been sitting on my wife’s desk for six months now and you can see that the color has gotten a bit deeper.

That’s from December on the left and today on the right.

The only finish is carnauba wax applied by heat of friction.

I like the darker colored grain in the turning. Really makes pieces interesting.

Many years ago I did some of the same with the bright white wood that you get in purpleheart scrap.

Damn that's purty...... Your listening is getting really good....... I still haven't been able to get my stuff out of storage so I'm kinds stuck as to what I can do
