Something a little different, I still started with a block made of plywood and chopped pieces out of it using a small chain saw and sawszall, then continued to shape it, used an amber tinted gloss to finish, the base is also plywood but stained to give it some contrast

I like it Dianne, great to see you experimenting with the plywood. Maybe one of your photos should have had it standing upright. You have a lovely finish on “the wave” and look forward to seeing more. Well done.

Hmm, not sure why the photos are sideways, it’s supposed to stand upright

Clever artwork. I am having an interesting vision of using three of them as coffee table supports.

A lot of photo software will turn the picture to be in the orientation where it best fits the prescribed shape the forum has set. So you’ll see a lot of pics on their sides here, where the poster swears they the other direction.

I like the wave, as I have liked all of your other ply art. It’s something I hadn’t seen before. Little whimsy. little art, lots of fun.

I opened the pics after loading them to my desktop. Once open I clicked “Paint” and selected rotate, went 90* to the right.

Very nice. I make high-end items to sell to the rich folks that own a home here on the Island in a very fancy area. (they have two art shows twice a year in the Home Owners Assoc. area) and I can see something like this with a very nice price being carried away after the sale. Great job.
