We had this piece of poplar at work and it was waiting to go through the chipper and be made into fire bricks because it had a few splits in it. I had to put a stop to that, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it But I knew I wanted it. When I got home I knew I couldn’t make a table out of it… I’m running out of places to put tables. Then I remembered I wanted something new for above the couch, I’m not much of a painter so making a beautiful painting to hang was out of the question, but I can hang a piece of wood on the wall lol. The piece used to have a lot more blue flowing through it but yours truly thought it would be a good idea to pop it through the planer to flatten it DOH! Now i have lots of pretty blue chips in my dust collector. It still retained some of its colour though. I added some ebony butterfly keys (correct me on that one guys, thats the only name I know for them, not sure if its right or not) to keep the cracks from spreading and to add a little bit more pop to the piece and presto wooden wall art, I guess haha.
