OMG I am thinking the poor table saw, its possibly needing some sort of Medical therapy
after that marathon job.

No doubt there is a weapon hidden in there somewhere behind a secret panel !

pottz, it’s about 1500 blocks, more or less. I didn’t count exact number. I bought the wood for this project.

robscastle, you are pretty much right. Few teeth were gone by the end of the job. There is no secret panel on this wall, as it’s a concrete wall and making a hidden safe would have been a pain. But some other time I will show another project with hidden safe in the wall behind wooden panel. It’s in another room.

1. How did you cut them all ?
2. How did you attach then to the concrete?

1. I cut them on a table saw one by one.
2. I attached plywood to the concrete first and then glued pieces of wood to plywood.

Very, very impressive for sure. Just curious, what type glue did you use to hold the end grain to the plywood?

Thank you everyone!

woodsmithshop, I actually don’t have end grain cutting board in my home, so I chop my food on a wall ))). Joking of course. I didn’t have any wood leftovers to make a board, so for now I’m using a plastic board ((.

horky, I used rubber adhesive made for parquet flooring. I tried other water based flooring adhesives, but the wood would bow and did not hold very well.

david38, indeed! Took me long-long time and many-many hours. But I had this wall in my head for few years. So it was pretty much a dream to make this wall.

Fantastic! Did you use any type of clamps or braces to keep the blocks in place until the glue set? Was finish applied before you glued them to the wall or after? Thanks for posting

Interesting coincidence that this is #1 and #2 is a box made of wood blocks to mimic stone.
