This piece is approximately 13” x 12” x 1.5” with a black walnut frame (natural color). The heart of this piece is a 3D carved Voronoi pattern in a walnut strip. The background is a dyed blue veneer. The blue veneer creates a stunning contrast with the natural black walnut.
Thanks for looking.

I would also like to know how you did the carving? Hand tools, or power tools, or both???

The kind of piece that would well suit a doctors office or dentist office. Hope that doesnt offend you….....

Also going to look up Voronoi. Great job, beautiful wood and beautiful carving and beautiful frame. Thanks for sharing.

Just looked up Voronoi – won’t ruin the surprise for others but I was thinking tribal art.

It’s an interesting process. I may try to carve something like this, not make it the way was done in the 7 minute video.

A few of you have asked about how to create a Voronoi pattern. The website has an excellent webpage describing how to draw a 2D Voronoi diagram. If you Google ‘Hand-Drawn Voronoi Diagrams’ and ‘Instructables’ you will find the page. The Voronoi pattern I used is a 3D pattern and is simply an extension of the 2D pattern. Of course you don’t want to do this with pencil and paper, you will need to program the pattern. There are many videos on the web, but I suggest taking the pencil and paper approach first to gain a good understanding.

Doggoned if I can find it now. It was a gal talking and taking a class through a tutorial with the end result going to a 3-D printer. It was a sphere with a ton of holes. The part I wouldn’t do- I wouldn’t try to 3-D print wood.
