    Dying, Photo Set-up and Sanding Station

    I was hollowing this piece, when tenon broke. I couldn't get it re-centered on a face plate so turned this into an experimental piece on coloring. I've started building a WOP finish,but wanted to get a few shots of the grain before it was too shiny. This will, essentially, be a practice piece. I used diluted Fiebings Leather Dye, black, burgundy and yellow. The inside it unfinished. I still need to work on my fading techniques.

    A quick shot of my photo set-up, I use shutter speed and aperture to control exposure.

    Finally, my "sanding station". Funny thing about New Mexico, in the winter time if you are in the sun and out of the wind, it's very nice; summer is the opposite, if you're in the shade and there is a breeze it's extremely comfortable regardless of temp........to some extent.

    Well Nate sometimes ya just gotta use what you get. I have did a few of those experimenting with finishes and coloring. Like your outdoor sanding station.

    I like the dye job, Nate. Pretty piece, too, even if you weren't able to get the inside done. I've gotten good results doing fades with an airbrush or a good HVLP mini-gun. Haven't had much luck wiping the color on.

    And I can relate to the sanding station weather. It's been great here this weekend, huh? Last weekend, not so much.

    Beautiful weekend, Vaughn. Opened up the garage door, did some finish sanding and started a new project. Last weekend was less then hospitable, it's a tad cooler up in the hills
