Galactic Forest

Timothy Gerrity's avatar Timothy Gerrity Vote Code: 66502

The ideas for this piece were created during my experimentation with discarded wood furniture over the last three years. This was a pretty nice piece of birch plywood. The top veneer on this particular piece of ply has a wavy iridescence. I see beauty in all wood grains. I typically use power tools, paint, poly and stain to create depth and interest. I simplified the process and used stains and a water based polyurethane on this one. I randomly thought of the name Galactic Forest months ago. I told my wife it sounded like a good band name. So, the name inspired the piece.
