29 Blocks waiting to be cut...





I picked up some wood in Berkeley last Saturday. I cut it on my table saw this afternoon. Now I have 29 Blocks waiting to be drawn on and cut...

9 are 5 x 7
16 are 4 x 6
4 are 6 x 7 3/4
There are a few odd sized scraps, but I plan to use them, too.

The Great Baren Cairn



This wood cut is part of a bigger project organized by Maria Arango of Las Vegas, Nevada. Maria is one of my role models. The URL for her website called http://1000woodcuts.com clearly spells out her goals - to do 1000 woodcuts - she is nearly a quarter of the way to her goal at 238.


My part of the cairn was drawn and carved yesterday after work. The entire Great Baren Cairn project can be followed at Maria's website. Take a look at her other work. She is amazing.
