Saloon Door Wood Burning
I was presented with an opportunity to do some artwork on this set of saloon doors destined to be the doors to a man cave.
I did NOT make these doors. The were brought to me already built. I was asked to put the Dallas Cowboys on the doors by wood burning. It was a long process.
I was instructed to not allow the door to split the star. You can’t see it from these photos, but the cross braces have a slight bevel on the edges so the lettering had to be arranged accordingly. I also had to invert the coloring of the star due to the helmet being completely burned into the wood.
There is more to come as this gets stained and finished…..stay tuned!
This job was burned completely by hand, with a very small torch to assist with some of the fill work in the larger areas. Staining is complete. I had to use different layers and different colors of stains to get the appearance needed to match floor tile samples I was provided. The base stain was a brown shade called Early American and then I went over it again with Ebony. I could not find a singular stain to give the coloring and highlights needed. Then the doors are sprayed with a satin lacquer.
