Wall Art
« on: October 20, 2021, 12:15:23 PM »
I tapped into my inner Bob Ross with some left over barn wood from a previous project.
My original vision was to make a large, rectilinear piece. But then I remembered the bourbon barrel hoops that were piled up in the shed.

So. This is is what happened??????



 

 

 

A bit more contrast would be nice. I was hoping the texture would pop a bit more. But I think it turned out ok for a first try.

That's nice. Here is one I made from some scrap Walnut, spalted maple, cherry, ash, birch, and some of my marbles from 1960.

Great pieces.  That is why I find it hard to throw away or burn my scrap wood.  Im always finding a new use.  There are so many things you can make out of whisky barrel parts.  I wish I could get them cheaper around here.

I really like the idea, but like you I think a bit more contrast would add something.  I wonder if you could somehow incorporate some negative space into it.

The problem with barnwood is that all species end up looking like barnwood. :-\

I'm thinking to try one made with rough sawn lumber.

Some honeylocust with that pink/red heartwood, some chinaberry with the orange colored heartwood, some yellow mulberry, etc would add great color contrast to a piece like that, Chris.  

If you want to try something multicolored and need the honeylocust and chinaberry, just say so.   I owe you anyway since you sent me that beautiful piece of oak burl many years ago.  

Dodgyloner made this mallet for me from that piece of oak burl that you so graciously sent me.  One end is capped with hard African ebony and the other end is capped with soft basswood for that delicate touch.

WDH, thanks for the offer. I believe I have some Osage somewhere in my stacks, though not very much, anymore. 
I did just mill that mega mulberry tree. But it will be quite a while before thats ready to go.  

The yellow colored woods are a very nice contrast to the browns and reds of everything else. 
There is a local countertop shop where I have been buying their surplus shorts. They always have mixed in something they call Iroko. Its bright yellow and tones down to that tawny orange color of Osage. 
The QS pieces have that nice ribbon effect in them. 
Here is the Iroko in the top half of this box. And you can see the QS effect on the front face at the top.

Beautiful.   Here is a wood art piece by a customer.  The texture in the wood frame is hand carved.

To the woodworker that make me jealous: how do you cut those curved pieces and make them fit together so seamlessly. It is such eye-catching work.

I have made cutting boards look like that by double sided taping pieces together and then cut some curves with the band saw.  Then mix and match the parts and glue together.

Thanks there Danny. It's a bit of old news, so to speak, but what the heck.  ;D
