Artisan Peter Brown is a self-proclaimed “geek with a full set of power tools” who takes advantage of his knowledge and skills to create gorgeous DIY projects. With an incredible attention to detail and skillful hand, he’s recently produced a wooden bowl that glistens with blue resin dancing around its edge. Inspired by secret wood rings, he wanted to produce something similar on a larger scale.
The result of Brown’s DIY is stunning—and he makes it look so easy. In a YouTube video, he starts by cutting walnut wood into one-inch wide and one inch-thick strips. “If you stop at this point,” he writes on Imgur, “you can make a very attractive walnut cutting board. OR, we can break out the sledgehammer and have a little FUN!” Opting for the latter, Brown starts whacking his way through the walnut to create sharp, jagged edges. Afterwards, he pours polyester resin (colored with blue epoxy pigment) over the broken wood and lets it fully cure.
