We just finished the Mini Farm Cattle Ranch and thought we would show you a project with using burnt wood.

The photo below shows the wheels from start to finish.  Wheel on the left as it came from Craftparts.com, then the middle one shows how it looked after backing it in an oven, the the one on the right is after 3 coats of Poly brushed on.

Thanks Roly
I was amazed at how well the wheels came out.
The burning is a little uneven, which happens a lot, but the three coats of Poly brush on really created a great look.
Again thanks

The wheels on the farm sets are really nice. The finish on the wheels really makes the toys stand out.

The poly was Minwax Water Based Oil-Modified Polyurethane Clear Gloss, and was brushed on.
Like I said before I was amazed at how well the wheels did come out.  Brushing this product on over the burnt wood just made for a great looking piece.
Again Thanks

Ken - Another eye catching project. The heat-treated pieces really come alive after applying a poly finish as well as the other woods used. And I can not leave without a comment about your photography, excellent [thumb].

I know traditional photo wisdom says to photograph things on a white background, but if the toy is not to dark I like the way it looks on the black shinny surface.
Makes the photos just a bit different.
Some of us just march to a different drummer.
