Scrap Wood Art

Scrap wood cut into trapezoids to make an art piece.

In this video I used up some wood from my scrap bins to create an art piece. When cutting the wood into trapezoids the three short side must be equal length to get a solid triangle.

I used pine with 3 different shades of stain, which gives a 3D effect. A better way of making a piece like this is to use 3 different types of wood with various shades and left natural.

The stain I used was Polyshades which is a combination of poly and stain. I prefer not to use this product but I had it lying around and didn’t want to buy the regular stain because I don’t use it and it will be wasting money.
