Hit it with a Hammer…..

Gently that is…. The desk is coming along, in fact I have started on the detail bits… The fancy little interesting bits that provide a point of interest, a visual joke or just plain confusing elements, that I am loving adding to otherwise unremarkable furniture… In this case I think I will add a spurious keyhole…. Maybe hinting that the table top began life as trunk lid, or a door…..

I started out with the one on the right, shiny machine-made and with a protective chrome finish… Some sanding, a good beating with a hammer and punch, followed by a light sand with wet and dry… And now we have some embellishment that will create a point of interest in a bit slab of wood… Subtle and pointless, and why not?….
