A while back I bought a bundle of warped and twisted 2×2’s at Lowes that were on their sale rack by the back door.
The 8 foot pieces were unusable for most projects, and the price reflected that … But Wait … if you cut them into small pieces they look straight again.
I saw a design like this years ago in Wood magazine, and this is how I remembered it.
The blocks are finished with amber shellac a bit runny, to make them looked old and weathered. I left the small knots because they look like where the cannon balls struck in some long ago battle.
This was a fun time wasting project and I don’t know what I will do with them, I guess that I’ve just always wanted a cool set of blocks. :)
Material is pine and fir, the top ports were cut with a router table and straight bit.
Thanks for looking.
