I was recently asked to make a few sycamore forms- I hadn't worked with sycamore before, I suppose I'd always thought of it as being a bit bland.
I visited my local tree surgeons yard and picked up just shy of 1/2 a tonne of freshly felled wood- this timber was felled as part of a forestry management- thinning, removal of dead or dangerous trees etc. If i hadn't of bought the timber it will be used for firewood.
here are just a few of the forms i have made with it
|6" wide by 9" tall|
|6" wide by 9 1/2" tall|
|6" wide by 9 3/8" tall|
|6 1/2"wide by 11"tall|
|4 1/2"wide by 4" tall|
