Well, this is not really a project but what was NOT the project.I decided to mill a bunch of stock for various projects which included several species of wood.The result was a rather interesting array of strata in the dust collector bag.Bill

I don’t have the clear bags on the DC, maybe I should, and try to find a way to market it.

There is art everywhere, but often only the discerning eye will discover it. Thanks for sharing. My question is, just how much wood did you mill to generate all that dust?

Now get a blowup of this picture and put a frame around it and hang it on your shop wall! Beautiful shavings! Too bad, it would have been nice if you could have been able to sell it as art?

Looks like one of those sand sculptures. Pretty cool, I wonder is there anyone else that has a pic of theirs and by the way empty your bag dude.

this is COOL.
we used to do this sort of drawing with clear glass soda bottles, and colored sand like this one (not my pic – but just to give you an idea):

Looks good. Too bad it couldn’t be glued up into a single piece of wood to look like that…

Well Rex, if you wanted to duplicate this you should get a hold of some mahogany, canarywood, maple, cherry, air dried walnut and steamed(commercial) walnut.The bag is the remainder of taking about 150 bd. ft. of 7/8” stock down to 0.6” Anyone want to buy that framed photo?!!Bill

I’m with Greg, it’s a shame you cant pour a very thin glue in there to fill the gaps. Make it into your own colourful “MDF” block.you could get some amazing things carved or turned from that. As well as some nice boxes.

I suggest you seal the bag up and try to sell it as art. Be sure to put a big price tag on it!
