I’ve made laser-cut art in the past, but this is the first piece done completely on a GF.

After 100 hours of design (which was previously done before I got the GF)…
After 26 hours of cutting 47 individual 12x20 pieces of Baltic birch…
After 20 hours of staining individual pieces…
After 15 hours of gluing…

I give you the following piece of art:

Here are some close-ups of the buildings:

To give you a sense of scale, here it is with me in the background:

It’s going to the gallery next week. Unless someone here wants to buy it. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

That is by far the most impressive thing I’ve seen so far. Your design makes great use of depth to create interest and detail. Simply superb. Thank you for sharing.

This is amazing. Some of those look like real buildings/structures - any chance they all are? Beautiful piece either way :star_struck:

Uh, how much?! That is utterly amazing! I had NO idea it was as big as it is until you put yourself in the background. I was thinking it was much smaller. I was blown away at the detail too. You’re a very talented artist. I’m going to jump out on a limb here and say that it’s probably too much for my blood but I’m still curious as to what you’d part with it for.

Still reeling! :exploding_head:

This. is. simply. marvelous ! And, I’m guessing that there are no two buildings alike. I really love the little pockets with some trees. Amazing piece of work. Thank you so much for showing us!
