Not my brightest idea
Oct 6th, 2014 at 11:17am
 
I like to work with Photoshop, so I came up with this bright idea that if I could cut the wood into 1/16 inch squares they could represent pixels. I could then take different color woods and glue them into strategic positions and form really cool pictures. Not my brightest idea!! Way too much work for too little Wow, so you are viewing the one and only time you are going to see this. (I think) Oh yeah, 256 pieces in each square.  Lips Sealed

If I remember he died them

There is a product called Rosette Sticks that is used to make rosettes (the decoration around the sound hole on a guitar)

If not the brightest idea you at least pushed the 'envelope'.  Your idea may lead to new techniques.. I like it.

A tremendous effort with good results which calls for another refined effort.

I like it.  It's reminiscent of a knitting sampler

This is the sort of fine detail work that I love. There's a fellow here in Chicago that makes end-grain wall hangings to similar effect, but using much larger squares; the small scale on your work makes this far more impressive. Excellent work!

I found a new measurement for happiness. For me, it starts at around 320 grit.

Impressive, Did you make each square as a single piece or did you make longer pieces that were then sliced to make the squares?

I made each piece 1/16x1/16x 8 inches long. When glued up I had a piece that was 1 inch square and 8 inches long. It allowed me to be able to use this not so bright idea on a couple of pieces.
