Another project with a tree theme. This time I actually made and painted the seven pointed hardboard leaves well in advance of using them. After a while I made two red oak door frames and kept trying to make sense of the 4 1/2” gap created by two meeting door stiles – there was no continuity in the tree trunk. Then I tried two tree trunks – that didn’t work. The solution was to cut out the meeting stiles and replace them with walnut which became the tree trunk.The panels are made from pallet boards and arranged by color to create a kind of landscape background.
All the woods used are salvaged, repurposed or scrap. 25 1/2” wide x 27 1/4” high x 4 1/8” deep. One coat of Seafin teak oil and two coats of water borne poly.
