Hello everybody

Today I show you my first brushed vase made of Douglas wood

I never thought that Douglas wood was so obstinately

I think the structure that comes through brushing is even more fantastic

I like it a lot, Roger. You are right. Douglas Fir can be a challenge owing to its grain structure. Many people, when sanding, get ridges because of the hard wood/soft wood structure of the grain. By wire brushing it, you intentionally got around the problems that creates. Nicely done.

I was wondering about the 'Douglas' wood also, and it looks like the Douglas Fir, so common here in Oregon. The Australians call it Oregon Wood.... Difficult to turn when you have a cross grain like that one, rather than a blank that is split off. If you take a wire wheel to it, or air blast it with some thing like crushed walnut shells, you can get really nice raised grain from the late wood, the dark grain, as the lighter grain is very soft.
