The concept for the wood object takes as its starting point the idea of "grain" as it pertains to woodworking techniques - that is, the manner in which the wood is produced and processed - and attempts to reinterpret it as tactile patterning. In this case, the pattern is an intricate saw-tooth that populates the object's surface. Half lap joints are used as a means of assembly.
