Hello folks,in 2012 I visited Chicago and loved the city.I always like to buy some souvenirs when I visit cities and in Chicago I purchased a nice T-shirt with a most famous sightseeing.I visited many cities in the world and in my opinion Chicago is on my five favorites (on summer of course).
So I saw at Sears Tower (I dont like to call it Willis Tower) a wooden replica of the build but it was in a clear color wood.So I gave up to buy one and back home with a desire to make one using a black rare Brazilian wood.
So since 2012 I’m looking for the wood and few months ago I found it in very small pieces and decide to use they.My wife’s uncle gifted me with this small rare pieces.I finished it today and still waiting for varnish to dry.
I made the Sears Tower and Jhon Hancock (at least I tried to do) in Black Jacaranda (some people call this wood as Iron Wood but they are wrong).The Sears Tower I saw at Discovery Channel how they did it and John Hancock I made “by eye”.
Here the same wood used at rifle
Here the both buildings
The Sears Tower
Here I used a flashlight for better ilumination
At John Hancock
Thanks for attention
