As my designs developed I shaped the wood, drilled it and burnt it.

I experimented with writing, stamping and burning it into the wood, always being aware of how I would achieve this effect in wax.

I spoke with Roddy at the general workshop about a wax pour and he was good enough to let me do it the same day.

The wax is super sticky and difficult to work with. While sawing it in to the steak shape, it seems to self-heal! I think the heat generated by the blade and the stickiness of the wax make a perfect storm.
