Not a whole lot to add to the story here. I simply added a coat of Tried and True Original to the stand as per the instructions on the can. That’s about all there is to it. I’ll add a maintenance coat in a few months or so.
This is a super simple little project. The frame is decorative only and has no structural value. With the feet inset and attached directly to the underside of the panel, any weight on the stand is born directly by the panel and feet. I’m using this stand for my incense burner, but it could be pressed into service for just about anything. The size and shape can be altered to meet the need. Plus it’s a great way to use up some scraps!

Thanks Greg, this was fun to watch.
How do you find tried and true, what kind of sheen level does it give and do you know the ingredients of it.
I love the stuff. It is my go-to finish. It creates a mat finish with a hint of a glimmer. It also creates a depth. The original version has two ingredients, polymerised (heated) linseed oil and beeswax. Completely nontoxic and food safe. Unlike BLO, the surface doesn’t dry out over time. I have pieces that are three years old now and look the same as the day I finished them. The surface that it leaves has a silky feel as well.
Truly beautiful in its simplicity, and the kolrosing is so good!
Thanks again. I like simple. Kolrosing and wood burning are a fantastic way to add decorative embellishment to a simple piece. Sure, marquetry and inlay are awesome, but they just don’t fit with the personality of my work. Plus kolrosing and wood burning are accessible techniques for everyone.
