Petrified Pine With Green Finial

This 10″ tree has been a labor of love. I started with some knotty pine that also had some amazingly textured grain. When it hit the oil, the grain turned dark brown while the knots remained an intense amber color. After about a week, the tree was pulled from the oil and allowed to dry — about another week. Then the long finishing process began. About 10 coats of thin shellac were applied, with sanding in between. The effect is not only like glass but the depth of the wood seems three dimensional. When you hold this piece in your hand it feels like it’s made of stone, kind of like petrified wood. And you can still smell the linseed (aka, flax) oil — a pleasant nutty smell.
