Wood-Quilting

... for a


beautiful


nest!

________


What I call "Wood-Quilting" is among my very favorite endeavors!  Marrying the feminine beauty of fabric with the rugged texture of wood creates a piece that inspires even as it is being built.  The finished piece is one you will relish for both its unique beauty and its versatile functionality!

3-Way Trays

________



Frolic’s 3-Way Trays are Wood-burned with beautiful designs on both sides!



One side is then stained, adorned with magnificent fabrics, and varnished to be used for serving crackers, nuts,  dips, or desserts.



The flip side, also with its graceful wood-burned design, is treated with protective mineral oil and then used to slice & serve hard cheeses.


The 3rd Use is Obvious ~ either side, simply standing on your counter-top,  is  joyful art! 





At this time, 3-Way Trays are available only at shows.

The Wood-Quilting Process
See how it's done!
_____________________________

Step 1

________



First, I prepare the wood.


I cut each piece to the size I want, sand the surface, and shape the sides and edges.

Step 2

________


Next, I draw each original design onto


a piece of wood that I have already


cut, sanded and prepared.

Step 3

__________


Next, I burn the intricate design


into the wood, often using a


variety of tips and henna-nspired 


design elements.

 

Step 4

______


When the wood-burning is done, I stain the board with one or more colors of wood stain.

 

Step 5

_______


After several coats of stain have been


applied the real fun begins - it's time 


to choose, cut, and fuse the fabric for


each part of the tray! 

Step 6

________


Once all fabric has been 


attached the wood gets many


coats of varnish and any


hardware needed.


Finally, it is ready for 


market!
