Seven Pieces of Driftwood

I finished creating a new sculpture this past week.  The piece measures 20 inches (50.8 cm) wide, 24 inches (60.96 cm) high and 3 inches (7.62 cm) deep.  It is created with construction materials and found objects.

There is some very interesting woodworking going on with this new piece.  My main woodworking tool besides the circular saw is the grinder.  I find it very versatile with all the different discs available.

The color behind the found driftwood pieces adds a really nice spark.

With this side view you can see how the piece trims out.

 Rummaging through my tools and shed I found the spring and wrench, a great addition to the work.
