Our next batch of Speculation wood – destined for interesting projects of random sorts as we see fit. UNLESS of course someone commissions something based on an inspiration from the images!
This is what happens when we wander into a lumber yard – it’s hard to leave without coming home with MORE WOOD! ... Along with our scavenging efforts its hard not to make a few key purchases. Our plan for most of this is to use the unique wood as a contrast to our concrete base designs.
We’ll see how 2012 goes – 2011 brought the first piece out of this line (more photos of that pending shortly!) and now we figure we’ll expand out into a some coffee tables and a desk.
A nice redwood burl slice …
Paulownia – what a unique wood. It’s so freaking light! ... yet the grain if you get a good piece is amazingly interesting. THIS piece is one of those such interesting pieces! We think this will make a really cool small executive desk!
And – a nice plank of black limba … likely a coffee table to be! This is a cool looking piece, the worm holes, the random grain, looks like a little spalting. Perfect is BORING … this plank is unique.
