"a lotta heart" wood wall art

  • Published on Nov 17, 2018
  • My friend Tom brought over his chainsaw and was helping me as I was cutting up some wood with it. We were both amazed at how beautiful this wood was once it was cut - we really had no idea what to expect :) Sometimes I'm really surprised at how beautiful wood is on the inside when it's hard to tell what it's going to look like from the outside. Once all the slices were cut, I was really excited about making an art piece out of them. I guess you could say I really put my heart into this one :)

      Yes, I'm sure the wood is suitable for epoxy use but I didn't use any on this project.

    I have seen work of all kinds, but this is among those that I call useless. Put four pieces of wood together to get nothing. I do not understand how you can admire something that besides being ugly is also useless, even to end up in a fireplace.

      It's not cedar because it doesn't have the cedar smell. I don't think it's redwood because it's much harder than most of the redwood I've worked with. I don't know what kind of wood it is - I don't think it's a very common wood since I've never had any like it before.

  • Downeast Thunder Creations

    Another outstanding piece of artwork, Professor O'Connor! You really shifted into high gear this time, and your enthusiasm and excitement shows through in the finished product. I also noticed the "gang" is back and chipping in with the video production.
    Sure hope none of the California wild fires are anywhere near you. A very good friend of mine lost his home, shop, and business from the "Camp Fire" in Chico last week. It's the second home & business he's lost to wild fires within a ten year period. Stay safe out there!

    • scott oconnor
      scott oconnor  7 months ago +2

      Thanks Paul :) Yes, this was one of those projects that I was really excited about because once I saw how amazing the wood was I could hardly wait to make something out of it!
      We had a big fire here last year so most of the brush in my area has already been burned up so hopefully we won't have another fire here for a long time. There were some fires about 30 miles or so from my house this year but I think most of those have already been put out at this point.....but it's hard to keep track to know exactly what the fires are doing or are going to do. Sorry to hear about your friend's losses. It's a really devastating and tragic thing to go through. I hope he can fully recover from his losses and get a new home, shop and business soon.

    Hi again Scot, your excitement for your art must be infectious ,as that’s exactly how I feel when I get notification you’ve uploaded another video,and as always you’ve created another masterpiece!!

    SCOTT!! That for me is by far the best piece I have watched you make man! Absolutely brilliant. I have been following your work for over a year now and shown you to a few of my wood loving pals. They all love your work too. If I had the money I would buy this piece. Perhaps we could do a swap. You choose any one of mine for this one 8-) No joke man. Also when I do finally start selling some of my art I promise I will post you out a piece of wood from the Black Wood forest where I live and am blessed to be custodian of a part of 8-) I also look after a farm estate and have 165 acres of woodland and all that is rotting or has fallen belongs to me. Its a dream come true. Well done on this project Scott well done!

    Lovely wood! Lovely outcome! Have I missed it, but I don't think you've introduced us to one of your other helpers. The helper holding the log for you to cut. Thanks Scott for another inspirational video.

    • scott oconnor
      scott oconnor  7 months ago

      No.....you are awesome!!! It's my fault for not telling you that your comment inspired me to change the description. Your comments mean a lot to me and are very important to me. As soon as I read it I realized that it was a bit thoughtless on my part not to mention Tom's name and the fact that he was helping me so I changed the description asap. Then when I replied to your comment a little bit later I forgot to mention to you that I changed the description even though I should have thought to tell you. But I do want to let you know that I appreciate all of your comments and they all mean a lot to me. Thanks :)

      Should have read your words under the video. Sorry to be such a fool! Please say hi to Tom.

    • scott oconnor
      scott oconnor  7 months ago

      That's my friend Tom. He brings over his chainsaw once in a while and lets me use it to cut wood for my projects. Every once in a while he cuts some but he mostly likes to help me as I do the cutting. I mentioned him before in another video - and he's been seen in a few - but I probably should have mentioned him in this one - since this was his first "speaking" part. He doesn't really seem interesting in being in my videos but just likes to come over and cut wood and hang out. He may start helping me do the polyurethane on some of the projects too, we've been talking about that. Maybe one day I'll talk him into a making a cameo if he's interested :)

    I am "Fascinated" by the way you see and can put together the idea that you see in your mind and then relay it to your medium, WOOD!!!!!!!!!!! This piece reminds me of a July 4th Fireworks Burst or Starburst.... "BURST"....... How did you see this different way to put the wood together in your mind instead of your usual way of the space betrix and the wire suspension.....REALLY GREAT JOB HOLDING MY ATTENTION AS I WATCHED THIS ONE NOT ONCE BUT TWICE, GREAT JOB, SIR SCOTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • scott oconnor
      scott oconnor  7 months ago +1

      Great way of looking at the piece! I have to admit, I didn't see it that way but once again you've given me new perspective :) My goal with this piece was to use the best parts of the wood and use as many pieces as I could......and I really had no idea what the art piece would look like when I began the layout. I just knew that I could make something good by using the most beautiful parts of the wood. The design evolved as I started cutting the pieces and I just had to trust that everything was going to work out in the end :) My feeling was that the wood was so beautiful that I just had to make it work :)

    Another GREAT project Scott! Love the heart theme. The grain cracks and coloring of that wood are fantastic. What type of tree is it from?
    PS - Wish you would use that straight edge as a push stick to kick out the cut offs on your table saw, instead of your fingers! (Now I sound like my mom, Haha) :-)

      Thanks! I really wish I was better at identifying wood but I've never been very good at it so I don't know what kind of wood it is. One day I hope to get a tree expert to look at my art pieces and tell me what they think. I appreciate the push stick tip and believe it or not, I actually use them quite a bit. I really do try to be extra safe when using any power tool and you're right.....I should use a push stick when pushing pieces off the table saw table :)
