I guess I’m in the middle of what will be called, when I’m gone, my “triangle” phase.
I’m enjoying how triangles intersect to create new angles, and how that creates spaces between the angles, and how they have an “arrow” like quality which can go with, or against, the grain patterns in the wood.
I’ve also wondered for a while how a “ladder” like separation of parts using barbecue sticks would look.
So I created this.
The wife said ”it’s a sculpture”, until I added the pencil. Now, at least in theory, it actually has a purpose.
The colour in actual life is somewhat between the “brown” and the “black” you see (depended on flash or not) – without the flash you can’t see all the action going on in the oak – after fuming I sanded with 1000 to get just some of the wood back down to pre-fuming colour.
I have a bunch of construction pictures, but it’s just 6 bits of wood and a slice of veneer glued together with a bunch of sticks, so I don’t think they really add much. This one is quite amusing though…
Bookmatched oak at a slight angle with rottenstone highlights after fuming.
Bookmatched ash with a sliver of unknown veneer.
Finished with linseed oil.
