Scrap Wood Wall Art Made From Walnut & Maple | How To Build – Woodworking

Blog Post: In this video, I build a piece of scrap wood wall art using Maple and Walnut scraps. This simple wooden art project adds a ton of style to any space, and you only need a table saw and pin nailer to make it. Check out Brad’s bent lamination cutting board video here:

Starting my own sticker board of my favorite woodworkers.

CReeves Makes says:

Maple. Walnut. Cant go wrong man. Perfect artwork. Did you try a flip flop pattern at all before settling on this? Just curious how that would have looked. Awesome!

Eric Mezenberg says:

I just got back from IKEA. I purchased something similar but it was a smaller cutting board

Light Studios says:

Beautiful art, good job.

Amrish Kelkar says:

Who in their right mind votes down a video like this? It made from almost-scrap material, is simple to make, artfully made, well shot and edited. What else can you ask for? Even a cynic should be apathetic at worst but a thumbs down? I’d like to meet these clowns some day. or may be not.

Keep up the great videos Mr. Crafted Workshop!!!

Hey Johnny! Came over to your channel from Seth’s Bike Hacks and having previously been quite interested in woodworking I have almost watched every single one of your videos hahaha. I love the work you do. Keep it up!


So have you sold this wood art ? If you sold this how did you determine the price of the wood art.
Nice job thanks

Modustrial Maker says:

Awesome project! This would look even cooler if you backlit it with some LED strips….you can make a rough plywood frame on the back, with french cleat built into it, inset from edges by a few inches, and then just wrap the frame with an LED strip to get a cool glow from behind the wall art piece. Something like this:
