    Hey everyone,

    I saw a video a few weeks ago (I can't remember where for the life of me) and in the background were these blocks of wood that were cut with different facets on them. They were either painted or vinyl was used on some of the facets in primary colors. Has anyone heard of or seen these?

    Just found an example that is similar. think I must've seen them done with vinyl because you couldn't see the grain unlike with this: [​IMG]

    I haven’t seen these. Next time I get the chain saw out I have some big chunks in the firewood pile maybe I will make one and put it in the garden. I have dozens of cans of paint different colors with just a little left to paint it up.

    I don't what that is called either but it does remind me of kintsukuroi, a Japanese technique of using powdered gold to connect broken pottery.
