Is it really just an ironing board though?

From a distance it lookslike simply a cute plant stand.
Looking closer - we start seeing the finished product
Upon closer inspection - OOOOOOOO
The centre lotus was burned in - the rest was done via engraver. A new toy - I had to test its limits!
Annnnnnnnnnnd engraving - day after day after day. It was my * downtime doodle* project
Testing the different heads on the engraver. This was a total *test it out* piece for sure! Engrave - sand - stain - sand stain repeat!
adding the first coat of stain to the accent areas. Adding two coats of stain usually darkens up the piece - so I chose to only allow it to darken certain areas by selecting different highlight points. Like this.
a nice example of the varying shades of layered stain and its effect.

Yes. I love the end product. However, the piece was more about the process and how to get to that end piece. So there are quite a few progress shots. Basically, my loving man bought me a new toy. An engraver. I had started burning this piece - the lotus - but after I found this, I switched it up to see what it's limits were. A girlfriend of mine took the liberty of doodling on the Henna Designs for me while I worked on other things, then I busted out my new toy and went to town! It toook a long time yes. Longer than most pieces - but simply because - it was the  ~downtime~ project. When I was too tired to do anything else - I would just grab the engraver and start playng. A month later - it's done!
