oak trinket box


This is a spalted Oak the spalting is where the wood it decomposing and the wood go soft this is why I have to stabilise the wood. Stabilising wood is achieved by putting the wood in a vacuum chamber filled with resin, whereby the vacuum sucks the resin into the wood. The wood is then cured in an oven, which makes the wood go very hard and leaves it with a shiny and glossy finish.
