You may remember that I asked the question, “What would you do with this slab of wood?”
Tonight, with a little help from my friends…, I figured out what I am going to do with The Slab, a 400 year old slice of one of the most majestic trees to ever grow on our planet. At first I thought about a corner table or a coffee table… Way to think out of the box there Dumb Ass!!!
Here I have this highly figured slab of redwood and all I want to do is build a table??? BORING!!! Instead consider building something amazing out of the most amazing piece of wood I have ever seen. To that end I am going to build a flower pot, leaves, and flowers out of The Slab.
So when you look at the next picture imagine the flower pot, leaves, and flowers made out of the highly figured redwood. Throw in some LED illuminated leaves, metallic bands around the flower pot, and stems made out of the same metal as the bands.
I can see what I am destined to build!!!
If you want to follow me along in this quest I’ll create a blog on LJ about it shortly. Also, please consider liking me on facebook.com/EZInlays too as that is where I tend to post the minute details of the project.
