The wood in this flower came from a tree that was alive when Columbus got off of his boat centuries ago! Because this slab of old growth redwood I lucked into is so old I wanted to learn how to work with the wood by building small projects like this.
Click this YouTube link to see video of the slab in all of its glory!!! Really it is an amazing piece of wood. https://youtu.be/k7LBR3iSjGI.
Or this link which has a bunch of pictures: https://youtu.be/unqcPsbwoYs.
While building it I paid attention to the grain pattern on each piece to make the flower more realistic. You should see this thing in the sunlight!!! Pictures don’t do it justice… :(
I built the flower itself from a kit called RoseBud using a plunge router and an RO Sander. Click the YouTube link to see an animated build.
Have an Ordinary Day...
