Meticulously crafted illuminated wall sculpture, made from a variety of species of hardwoods that were harvested from the family farm down in rural Ohio. Wormy Maple, Cherry, Walnut, White Oak, and Hickory make for a stunning display of richness and depth. After the initial lumber is planed and jointed from its rough cut state, individual pieces were cut at a variety of thicknesses and lengths. From there, each individual piece of wood was created, being sanded from 120 grit all the way to 600 grit. After the entire piece was put together, I coated it with two coats of Natural Danish Oil, which brings out the depth of the grain and richness of color, all you see is the wood, not a colored polyurethane coating or something similar, nor do have the uniform feel of a generic polyurethane coating, with the Danish Oil what you feel is the wood itself. And those tunnels and trails created by the worms in the Maple?!?! They are not filled with poly, they are open as if in use, but don't worry, there are no creatures still living in them!! There are 15 Xenon low voltage bulbs hidden neatly in the sculpture, creating dramatic shadows and a warm glow over the piece, as shown in the pictures. Overall size of the piece is 55"L x 25"H x with an average projection of 2-1/2" and a maximum projection of about 4-1/2". This piece is ready for shipment, if you desire something different in shape, species of woods, etc. we can discuss a time frame. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Grant
