    Cutting Edge Wood Creations

    BNW Spring Show 2019/ Wood

    As a wife and husband team, our ideas, derived and inspired from nature, the environment and whimsy. Sketched on paper, then transferred to computer for the images to be put together harmoniously. We create an image and discuss the stain colors for the finished art. Then the work is disassembled on the computer for each piece to be intricately cut and/or etched on pre-hand sanded and stained wood, per our color palette. The wood is hand waxed, and spray lacquered for a smooth and lasting finish. Wood can range from fine hardwoods (including Cherry, Oak, Mahogany, Alder) to European Baltic Birch Plywood. The pieces are then reassembled with wood spacers to create our 3D effect and glued into place and framed.
