I've been trying to use the self-imposed quarantine wisely. Within the last three weeks I've finished another segmented vessel and a bowl. The vessel has 389 pieces of White Oak; Maple, Yellowheart and Walnut. The feature ring has an open segment design. The 14” bowl is also made of White Oak and Walnut. They're both finished with Min-Wax Antique Oil.
My wife and I had our kitchen remodeled last year and as a finishing touch, I wanted to add a decorative ceiling panel from which we could hang pendant lights over the new island.My other goal was to cover one of the can-light fixtures over the island. That fixture was on a dimmer switch with 4 other can lights in the kitchen. I didn't want to wire the pendant lights to the same switch so I ran new wiring and installed a new switch.The mounting frame was fashioned from construction site salvage lumber :-)The panel was my own design and I made it from cherry plywood with solid cherry trim. I stained it with English Walnut and applies a couple coats of water-based poly. It was pretty straightforward but I'm really happy the way it finishes the look of the kitchen.
