The "Stacked Walnut" piece was influenced by dry stacked stone walls that I have done in the past. At the time I started to put it together my goal was to mimic a cut stone wall in wood with all the natural variation. I chose walnut due to the beautiful coloration and graining that are characteristic to american walnut. The reclaimed end chunks were cut individually to show the most interesting face or end grain patterns. There are no two pieces exactly alike and to the best of my abilities no recurrence of structural pattern. The coloration of the piece and the shadow lines change very nicely as lighting changes through out a day giving it an evolving appearance.
