Rustic Reclaimed Wood Art

We are on spring break this week, but stuck at home. I always get bummed seeing the fun (tropical locations!) everyone else is experiencing. We have been trying to do something new or out of the ordinary each day--ya know, a staycation. Here we are in Yellowstone (after sitting in the hot pots).

I also have been having "spring break" in the workshop--playing and just having experimenting, not working on anything in particular.

I spied some decent trim board scraps in the corner of the workshop and decided to start chopping angles and came up with this art piece.


Rustic Reclaimed Wood Art
I drew diagonal and perpendicular lines on a scrap rectangular piece of plywood. I then started with the green trim board (this had hooks on it originally in our 1931 schoolhouse) and figured out the angle (53 and 37 degrees). I cut and filled in the boards from there.

I painted the boards a bit and then sanded a lot of it off.

I added a reclaimed wood frame and stained it all.
