Merlayna's West Coast Wood Sculptures
wood art sculptures & carvings


Cherry Log from a tree cut down in Oak Bay

I cut off the cracked parts and then drew the bowl shape

Hollowed out the form.....

It was challenging getting down to the bottom

The inside was sanded smooth in the desired shape

The excess outside wood was then removed with a chainsaw

Checking the thickness of the piece with capilers

Today I put the finish on this cherry vessel. When the grain patterns appeared, it looked 'cosmic', so this piece has been named 'Cosmic Cherry'
