salt and wood

Re use it or lose it

 

An LP record stand to show off the cover art, protect it from the daily hazards and always know where you left it! This single hardwood plank (species unknown) was surprisingly dense and though looked to have been in the sea for a year was still fairly sound over all. For some reason one face had eroded in a more furrowed way than the other. I kept the smoother bleached out side exactly as found (became rear face of stand) and worked the furrowed face.

 The process

-Trim the ends

-Scrub down with a brush

-Paint base coat to the furrowed side

-Sky blue spray paint coat to furrowed side

-Sand back newly painted face leaving the paint to seal the cracks and some timber grain is revealed

-Section plank into three equal lengths, two for the face and one to be dissected origami style to generate legs, rear shelf and lift grip (refer sketch diagram)

-I crafted a joining biscuit from a bit of scrap 3 ply and routed a groove to fix the two face sections and then screwed the leg supports to flatten and secure the face.

-Drill and place brass rod supports (found a length of this in the street).

-Add SALTANDWOOD stamp and varnish select surfaces to generate contrast to preserve as found faces.
