Thanks George and DJ.

DJ, all of the wood colours and castings are indeed chalks and alcohol. The process is explained in detail in the thread on the SW forum.

Now that is what you call doing the details the right way.

Beautiful work.

What he said! What is your stain/grain/texture/color method for this one?

Thanks for the comments Dallas and Derick, good to read.

Derick, the graining was done with several wire brushes as per Brett's instructions. The wood was then 'stained' with chalk and alcohol as described in the manual. I'm really happy with the results.

Yeah it looks great. The uneven coloration from the chalks works really well. I should have probably guessed this since I've read through the instructions on the Tool Shed kit but always curious to pick up new tricks. Thanks for sharing.
