Tools used to make the sculpture include table saw, jointer, planer, thickness sander, carving tool, hand chisel, sander and a CNC router The walnut is mounted in a maple frame and is offset from the back of the frame by about 1/2”. The finish is one coat of hand rubbed wax.

The overall size is 18” x 11” x2”.

That is real nice Roger, like the way the waves has brought the grain to life. Have you had a look at Kerry Vespers site, he does very good wall hangings in wood? Great piece of art.

Looks great Roger. An interesting take on what is a problem for some …..... You could of course have just sprayed water on some walnut veneer and let if bubble and warp all by its self, and then mounted it. I’ve loads like it in the garage that need flattening!!

Funny you should mention the warped veneer. When I posted the image that is exactly what I thought. Would have been a lot less work and sawdust.

Really cool piece! Funny thing is I don’t care for most abstract art but wood pieces like this blow me away. If you haven’t already check out Tree Wiz site. Love everything he does.

Framing the sculpture adds another dimension of beauty.
Anyone would be proud to display that!
I guess you can tell that I like it.

Hi Roger,
The only problem with this piece is that I can’t stop looking at it! It’s beautiful!

Hi Roger I am amazed at your work. You do all of this on the CNC?
