I debated whether to post this, or climb back in bed and hide under the covers.

It’s a table. I had all this scrap, and got bored, and . . .

It’s poplar, walnut, cherry, red oak, white oak, mahogany, yellow heart, purple heart, birch, cedar, lacewood, and pine.

No more words.

Wow – it’s original, I’ll give you that, but I think I’m with Rick M.

You know what I was thinking, while looking at the photos? I’m thinking,

Okay. He’s gonna sculpt it now.

Really. You know there are people whose gorgeous furniture starts out looking like this. Pieces of wood, carefully arranged, with all the joinery concealed. Then they sculpt, using whatever means necessary. Look into it. You may have another day in the near future when you’re bored. Here’s an excellent start for you. It’s a six-year-old video. I met Andy at one of the shows a couple years ago, and saw his work, and was overwhelmed. Beware. You may be drawn in. Here’s a link to one of his galleries on his school’s site.
You really do have the beginnings of something truly fantastic there.

What matters is if you are proud of it…

Very eclectic. I am digging the style. I think it’s very cool. I can see why it’s not for everyone, but I certainly like it.

It’s got kind of an Art Deco look to it.

I say it’s Frankenstein great. Whether it’s artistic curiosity, morbid experimentation or simply cathartic, to break the rules every now and then helps change the way you see and interact with your craft for the good

thanks for sharing!

I may be with Rick M too. I never thought of sculpting it, but that would mean I would have to go buy more tools. Wait! More tools!

What the heck. Post it on ebay for $10K. Like Andy said, it’s art after all.
