This is an abstract wood sculpture sitting on my table, still in progress. I cut cedar timber freehand on a bandsaw and then assembled it using structural self drilling lag screws. It is pretty much finished, I think. The next step is figuring out how to put it on a concrete base and install it outside so it doesn’t tip over. That’s the plan, anyway.
An assemblage of wood that I cut as though drawing freehand. I was thinking about the classical idea of the “line of beauty.” It was interesting that the pieces seemed to naturally flow together.
Then I assembled the arrangement with nails and glue. After trying many colors, it seemed to feel best painted a neutral off white.
Reclaimed cedar siding
This is constructed of 3/4″ birch dowels that were randomly cut into segments, puzzled together in a single line until they connected and then colored with casein paint.
An arrangement of found copper flashing mounted on outdoor grade particle board, sealed with wood stain and marine polyurethane and attached with bronze boating nails.
Biscuit joined, gilded, sliced and spliced wood.
