Pieces of wood from my “Think Big” (giant chair) piece.

Dimensions: 22’’ x 10’’ glued on Narra.

Total of 13 hours of making my own puzzle, scratching my head, spreading Titebond III glue, scratching my head and then struggling to clean out the glue from my hair.

Its a nice way to appreciate the smaller things & the natural color of wood.

I wonder if I can do something similar but with saw dust…

That had to take a lot of thought.
It came out great.
You could hang it sideways and it would look just as nice.

And, welcome to Lumberjocks.

I LOVE it! That is so cool… we don’t often see modern stuff here on LJ and this one is a real treat!
Give me some details… size in particular.

Super Fantabulistic!! We sometimes get caught up in tradition like a Greene & Greene cabinet, etc.,but this is a love of wood; colors, shapes, texture and grain. I don’t remember where I saw this but it applies here.

Thank you Artist!

22’’ x 10’’ glued on Narra with a total depth of 1.5 inches

Thank your for all comments… I’ll make more in the near future. Maybe as I get better at this, I could attempt replicating Picasso painting in wood and in 3D.

Cool! If not Picasso, have a look at Mondrian or Kandinsky, also suitable for this application. haha, nice.

Hmm, this gives me some ideas…
Saw dust ~ okay.. for over the last 5 years, every time I make a batch of clean and pure saw dust from one (sometimes two) woods… I save it in a plastic bag. Right now have at least 10 colors and textures from common maple and walnut, to bloodwood and ebony. have also pondered using them as one would make a sand painting, but I have not followed up on a binding material. I was considering a 2 part epoxy, but I am wanting to be more green.. have you heard anything about soy glues?

@ Jacob ~ don’t you think Mondrian would be insulted? But I see your comparison.. LOL

@ Eric: Never heard of soy glue… I experimented today with AKZO NOBEL Wood Adhesive, it dries clear but its taking a while to dry. You have to make sure there’s no bubbles since my first attempt end up with a small hole when it dried up.

@Jacob: Kandinsky’s style could be another cool approach by overlapping different shapes & colors on top of each other. You probably have to sand every piece thought before you glue them together.

Hey Nico, right up my alley man! I like! I play in the same way, just can’t get myself to burn the off cuts….

This one has some secret drawers…
