Over the course of the week I spent a little time each evening adding the uzukuri treatment to all of the pieces. Each piece took about an hour to complete using the uzukuri “brushes”, gouges, file and sandpaper. Why all of the extra implements? I decided to go for a deep texture of these pieces. While it is possible to create a deep texture with just the uzukuri “brushes”, the addition of other the other tools speeds up the process.
I did manage to complete the textural treatment on all of the pieces. I also was able to apply a coat of Tried and True Original to the pieces as well. The addition of the oil will make the piece a little easier to dust and it brought out the color of the wood just as I wanted.
The weather is supposed to turn cold for the next few days so I’m not sure when I’ll manage to get this screen assembled. Hopefully, I can call it done before the end of the week.
