The Good Oil

Pretty close now to a completed truck, having applied the first coat of Danish Oil.

truck-2-2 truck-1-2 truck-3-2Tried something different with the wheels – not sure it worked.  Using a pyrography pen to burn and texturise the surface, then partially sand back.  Will leave it a few days, see whether it grows on me or not.  They are meant to look used, not new – they are dump truck wheels after all.

Happy with the Queen Ebony highlights – just a little extra to really set things off.

    • I am. It has a really good vibe, works well in itself, and with the house too. Easy to get to, easy to have a conversation across the yard, especially with the roller door open, so it is much more accessible for family to see what I’m doing etc
