This is another quick project that can add an attractive and useful accessory to your office without a lot of effort. This project started as a piece of 1/2” oak board that I had to cut off from another project due to the large “defect”. I enjoy looking at these unique pieces of wood “snake-eyed” to see what hidden beauty could be unlocked.
With some freehand scrollsaw work, the image of a wind-swept tree clinging to some desolate shore was evoked, and enhanced by the natural darker brown shades in the grain.
I also enjoyed that a potential cast off piece of wood could be saved – it is a good conversation starter as well.
