This untitled piece of locally sourced black walnut is several weeks in the making. As you can see it is being meticulously carved and shaped. The final piece will be displayed – similarly to how it is being worked on – balanced on a piece of 3/4″ galvanized steel pipe.
Due to the intricate and complicated curves and shapes I need to access, I have not installed the manufacturer’s recommended safety guards (Don’t try this at home). However I take every precaution and use a full set of safety gear for eye/face/ear/hand protection.
