Adding to my recent string of sculptures, this newest work is a simple piece that I used as a way to experiment with creating a laminate out of different types of wood. Nowadays most of my work is done with the use of a CNC machine, but it's always fun to go back to the more primitive process of hand-laminating wooden curves. I had previously only used poplar for laminating, but in this instance I tried something new by combining walnut and birch. The result was two wooden curves that have alternating light and dark bands. It's unlikely that I'll ever use this effect in one of my products, since hand-laminating is a very time consuming process, but it's always fun to play around with new ideas, no matter what their usefulness.
