Making a Six-Sided Wood Art Sculpture

Making a Six-Sided Wood Art Sculpture


I was working on two projects simultaneously. Both of them I was trying to do a specific
shape. In my head, I envisioned this as a hexagon,
so I knew this had to be sixty degrees. I made a little template that had the right
angle that I basically eyeballed. Clearly, I did not do a very good job at it,
because these angles were a degree or two off. It made it difficult to line them up when
I was gluing them up. I was able to smooth these out once I got
them glued up. Of course, I scorched it with a torch as well
before finishing it with spray lacquer. This is made from a reclaimed oak bed frame. I have lots more of this wood, so you can
be sure there will be more projects like this one coming out of Cammie’s Garage.

  1. Really great execution. Lathe is great tool and that chop saw is super nice for holdong straight cuts. 1 or 2 degrees off is actually not bad at all. Thanks for showing us. Again.
