I made a few small wood boxes as an experiment and then decided to make a bunch of them, all varying in size and wood species and all from scrap and recycled wood. The original intent was to put them together as a wall hanging.
Then a few were made without bottoms, so I needed some kind of background to hold them together and have the background wood show through. The number of boxes increased until I had over sixty. Next I built the back panel at 17 1/2” wide by 35” high using salvaged wood flooring samples and started attaching the boxes. During that process, I made many different layouts as to where each box would go. The end result is a wall hung piece of fifty- five boxes made from twenty-five different species. The panel reached a depth of 7 1/2”.
