Powerful Words Can Be Pretty, Too   1 comment

I’ve been making my word blocks, and saw that natural wood was not the only way to go. It’s time to switch it up.

For the first time, I’m offering painted wood for sale. That’s a big idea for me.

In this case, I’ve made the 3 dimensional carved words on the CNC, just as I did the original batch that premiered last month. Those words were made from Cherry, and finished with mineral oil. These new words are made from Redwood, and I’ve teamed up with a couple of artists to help me paint them.

I’ve helped the artists by making frames for their fine art canvases … they’re helping me by bringing their sense of color and composition to the Woodshop.

It takes a village.

Here are pictures of the frames that will soon be adorning the homes of the discerning art collector community. They’ll be covered with canvas, of course: these are not art, no matter what a woodworker might think!

But I digress.

These new words are unique; no two are alike. I think you’ll agree that these unique expressions have power. After all, words do.
