With this project I wanted to create an abstract representation of a giraffe against a deep blue sky. The black walnut carved Voronoi pattern closely resembles the giraffe pattern and the deep blue dyed veneer represents the sky. The dyed veneer was glued to a piece of 1/2”plywood using a vacuum veneer press. The biggest challenges in this project ware designing the Voronoi pattern and then accurately cutting the veneered plywood to match the curve of the walnut (the walnut is not simply glued onto the veneered plywood, but actually set into the plywood as can be seen in the last three pictures.
As before I first designed the pattern in software and then cut the pattern on my CNC machine. The frame is 3/8” black walnut with mired joints. Finish is Minwax hand rubbed poly.

I really appreciate how you share your process. These are very creative and unusual pieces and you manage to make them very distinct and different from each other. I love your use of form and color.
Thanks for sharing

That textured walnut is very attractive and a nice contrast to the blue.

Very cool, Roger. I was dwelling on that and thought that would be a really cool center stream for a river table, painted blue and covered with a lay of clear resin!!

cheers, Jim
