Wood Creativity

My friend Bill shared details today of creative woodwork that is featured prominently in his Victoria office:

“Frame is African Mahogany (the cheaper one, Honduras is the expensive variety). Tree is cut out of a piece of Baltic Birch ply (5/8″). The image is of a real tree. I took a picture, emphasized shadows and light, then sketched from my computer screen to paper. Scanned the sketch, then used a projector to blow it up on to the plywood and copied it from there. Then cut out with a jigsaw.”
