I just completed this wall hanging today. The thought of combining a rustic wormhole look with a more polished piece has been running through my brain and I finally decided to give it a go so I could give my brain a rest from thinking about it and get some sleep.

This was made using a really nice piece of Red Tidewater Cypress with a border of Leapordwood.
The finished size is about 22×14” and is about 1” thick… The finish is Lacquer. I considered a contrasting stain on part of it but decided to leave well enough alone on this one and save that idea for the next one.

We’re taking it to the Nashville Craft Show this weekend to see if I can find it a new home on someone’s wall.

Like it a lot.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nice! Love working with cypress.
The first picture made me strain my eyes. Second picture made me realize what I thought I saw in the first was an optical illusion. I though the holes were in cones rising from the surface

Great carving – reminds me of seaweed drifting on the currents. No need for stain on this one, the beauty of the wood is sufficient. Best wishes for success at the crafts show and thanks for posting.
