About

Every so often I envision a fulfilling life as a carpenter. I always have a part of me that needs to physically make something - Tree Ring Display was a temporary outlet. 

 

Starting with a block of mahogany, I sanded the corners down to make a round edge and sawed away four slivers of mahogany discs. I cored and beveled the edge of one of these discs to make the frame for the display. Separately I created a vector file of a tree ring and laser etched the design onto a thin piece of wood veneer. After framing this etch in the mahogany disc, the final piece is intended to be hung from a window, so the sun can backlight and accentuate the design.
