Cedar sculpture in progress

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.
