This is a commissioned piece from “gbvinc”, one of our fellow LJ’ers.
This piece, I think, speaks for itself – done for a lover of science and music. What a great combination!
He wanted me to “pick the gnarliest piece of wood and cut it on that”, so I picked a really figured piece of sugar maple, left the live edge on the top as well as even the edges I painted to dry the slabs I cut from the log.
Piece measures 11×8 and is 3/16’s of an inch thick.
Finish is a nice long soaking in lemon oil to bring out the really nice grain and then backed with thick felt.
Enjoy – I hope gbvinc does at least! ;-)
