Possum up a tree

This is an example of kohlrosing, an ancient Norwegian art. In a piece of wood you make cuts and where you want it darker, make them closer together and criss-cross the lines. Then you grind coffee grounds very fine and rub in the cuts. Sand it off and apply mineral oil. We did this today in carving class and I posted this for Bill to see.
