Laminated Wood Art Made Easy: Symmetrical Multi-Generational Patterns

Stephen Carey

Available Now


This second installment in the Laminated
Wood Art series focuses on using a multi-generational process to create unique, symmetrical wood art patterns with
intricate designs. This straightforward
method involves cutting laminated strips of different wood species at various angles and gluing them back together to develop new, repeated configurations. The designs
discussed in this book employ evenly balanced patterns that can be manipulated to form new, more
complicated designs. Artistic concepts naturally evolve with each generation. Learn how to build a pair of end table tops, then take
these indispensable principles and use your imagination to combine them
into new artistic shapes and displays. Friendly instructions and images of
different phases of completion result in symmetrical multi-generational
patterns using four generations. The author also covers many woodworking
basics, such as safety, tools, materials, wood movement, and moisture.
