This is a project that I completed in my Free-form Woodworking class at Red Rocks Community College. The assignment was to create a mask, and from there we were free to do whatever we wanted. I found this chunk of Maple burl at a really cool saw-mill called TC Woods in Lafayette, CO. After two weeks of hacking away with an Arbor-tech, a die-grinder, all sorts of gouges, rasps, and various sharp objects, a face emerged. The finish is a citrus oil/ tung oil mix that fellow LJ, Roper gave me. Not only does it look cool, but it makes the room smell like oranges.
