Bandsaw Cities


Pennsylvania based artist James McNabb has created these gorgeous wood sculptures by collection scraps of wood and then cutting away at them with a band saw. He refers to this process as “sketching with a band saw,” he mentions that his original intent was not skylines but rather the creation of pieces resembling tools and other objects. After creating close to 250 of these objects in one day the cityscape began to take form. Regardless of the original intent having been lost  McNabb’s creations are beautiful and fascinating to inspect up close. I love how you can still see the rough edges left by the saw and the colored ends of the scrap wood. Oh, and check out the shadows these cast, very cool, potentially my favorite part.
