Dovetail box made from mahogany floorboards. My friend stripped the boards out of an estate in South Carolina moments before it was demolished. Ripping off his respiratory mask yelling “Hey! I’m still in here!!!”…. Luckily he retrieved the wood successfully.

Here I applied a bit of science to my wood burnt skateboard. Showcasing a pit viper and identifying it’s latin classification name, Bothriechis schlegelii. Also on the map below the imagery I burned stripes to specify the region this species can be found.

Using the top of the board to portray a less educational form of art the scales gravitate upwards creating as mass that recedes to the top.

This was an exciting project and skateboards are an awesome canvas, Hopefully more to come soon!
