Hi, I’m new to LumberJocks. I build kitchen gadgets for a living. Here is an example of my work. In addition to building wooden art pieces, I teach classes periodically in the Grand Rapids MI area on how to build them. Most of the works pictured are end grain made from a variety of hardwoods including primarily maple, cherry, hickory, walnut and mahogany.
I hunted for some more photos to upload. Cherry, Hickory and Maple often produce some interesting patterns. The key is to carefully study each piece of wood for unique and vivid grain patterns and then utilize repeated bookended effects.
