April, 2017—Glued up scraps of wood create “blanks” that are almost always fun to work with. First, cutting out the project always reveals some interesting grains, patterns and contrasts. Second, it is satisfying to create something of beauty out of stuff that could just as easily been sent to the landfill. The last photo shows the glue-up I started with, before any cuts were made. As you can see, it’s a glue-up of glue-ups.
Nothing unusual in the construction. The overall shape is free-form, only based on what I thought might look good. I’m please with the results. I used a medium stain for added color, followed by water-base satin poly.
While most of the wood in this project is pine, I believe a board or two of poplar snuck in. Thanks for looking.
