This is not a wood creation, but I thought some people might like this.
I make them on a CNC machine out of Corian material and a software program which, by loading a photo into it, gives me a negative of a photograph and [the program] creates a code for my CNC machine to cut out the negative. The dark areas appear as high spots and the lighter areas become low spots on the Corian material. When light is passed through the Corian it becomes a three dimensional picture. It is hard to believe the visual effect of the photograph!! You can put them on/in a window and see the photos – or a box which is made with a light source. Most Photographs work as a lithophane.
