This is not my project, it is one of my students, Gerrit. My Woods I class had the task to make abstract art after learning how to use machines and square up a board.
I thought his project would make a good example of balance for this contest. Especially since there is not much abstract art in lumberjocks. (I think anyways)

Any comments will be relayed back to my student(s).

I believe that he did an excellent job creating one of a kind art from a piece of wood that was to be thrown away.

The piece is finished with a natural stain and several coats of polyurethane.

Not a lot of contemporary art stuff. Or art for art sake but there are a few who do post. Nature is full of unique patterns and designs, I would hope you open his eyes to them…Nice form, what would happen if he used some chisels and gouges?

Very nicely done—that student earned an A+.

Like it. I have been thinking of creating wood art besides using natural form (live edges etc), thanks for sharing.

Woods 1 Class, I don’t know how many classes you teach Gerrit, but this student is going to be one of your top stars. No dunce hat for him. Great Job. Not to bad for the teacher either.
