Stephen Sisson from Fellowship of Faith in Gallipolis, OH brings us this unique shape for reclaimed wood.
They started with 2x4s to build a basic diamond shaped frame with a wider base at the bottom for stability. All of the wood was brought in by a member of the church who was trying to get rid of some scrap. To create the negative-space cross section,they just nailed two small pieces of scrap together and framed the wood around it.
To provide more versatility if they didn’t want it just as a center piece, they brought in a circular saw and just cut the center braces at the top and bottom. That gave them two more-or-less identical pieces they could then separate and move if needed.
The design cost them $0. All the wood, even the framing wood, was donated.
