I’ve been working on this one for the past year, and I finished it about 2 months ago. It’s been sitting in my garage waiting for the weather to get warmer so I can varnish it.

Approximately 300 individual parts were stained and glued in order to make this piece. There are 21 layers of 1/8" Baltic Birch wood.
The whole piece is about 6’ tall. Here’s one of me beside it for scale (I’m 6’ 3").
Here are a close up of the city and a side shot.
