  • Chip Carved Canister

    I had gotten this canister from Wayne Barton some time back and finally got around to completing it. This is made of basswood and I stained it with nutmeg and clear coated it with Deft satin spray lacquer.

    Great job. I love it. Gives me an idea for a wood bowl I have. Tell us more about the stain. Most basswood blotches but the Nutmeg looks perfect. What kind of stain? What was the process?

        When I chip carve to achieve the chips being darker I spray a lite coat Deft lacquer on the entire piece before I layout or carve. After carving I then cleanup the surface and apply another lite coat of Deft, this seals up the end grain in the chips which helps keep the stain from running in the wood end grain and making the cuts look fuzzy. The stain is a gel which is a must because the liquid stain will soak into the end grain way too much. The key is not in the brand of stain but in the type of stain gel. This technique also is what helps tame the basswood blotchiness when staining. I hope this helps.
