For my Main Project, I knew that I wanted to work with quality wood to make a timely piece for display. The main question I found asking myself, is what do I want to do with wood and what will be possible and or within my “scope” of being achievable. Another question was for whom do I want to make this project for. Like my upcycling project, which was dedicated and made as a gift for my mom, I also want my main project to act as a gift. The options that I kept throwing around in my head, was my little brother, my father, and or my good friend who leaves for pilot training June 2nd. I still need to narrow down whom I want to dedicate this project too, and once I do that, it will direct exactly what I will fabricate.
However, the general theme that I want to achieve with my project, is some type of wood wall art. After doing some research on DIY wood art projects, I saw multiple ideas and concepts that were very appealing to me! Below are some pictures of some projects that were eye catching that I may want to emulate and adapt for my main project.
From my research into wood art, I was really interested in the wood burning technique and the amazing features and projects that result from it. Therefore, I am leaning towards a combination of wood burning to add permanent images onto the wood, with wood carvings and or cut-outs. I think with the combination of the two, I can create a beautiful wall piece. With these two aspects, I also want to incorporate a light system, similar to that shown in the image above, that responds to music possibly and changes color depending on the music being played. I am sure there are simple light strips with built in programs and a Bluetooth system that accomplish this, but I do need to do more research into this aspect to see if it is feasible.
