“I just love accidental art. It’s that kinda thing where you didn’t mean to make it but it looks pretty cool, anyhow. Well, my dear son, bless his heart, was tryin’ to cut me some tree slices, only his saw blade was pretty darn near gone. I mean, it was so dull, it burnt the wood! Started a new trend! Just hope he don’t burn down the barn makin’ me some more,” Gramma Kakie
The pictures don’t do these four wood slices justice, because the accidental wood burning on this cedar created artistic patterns and a polished finish that is so attractive and not fully captured in the photos. The result was due to a very dull blade on the chop saw, for real! One side of each of the rustic cedar slices were burned and polished at the same time, while the other side (last photo) shows the natural appearance.
The two chunky pieces have plenty of natural bark. These have not been finished in any way, other than a light sanding on the edges – no varnish, or sealer was applied. The largest piece is about 4.5 inches by about 2.5 inches, and is about an inch thick. These wood pieces would be great in an assemblage art project or just displayed on their own.
