How I Made Floor Art From Random Wood Pieces

My name is Alexey Steshak. I’m a mad decorator, and I create WOW projects with my own hands.

Today I’m going to show you my new project – The Hardwood Floor with Ceramic Birds, which was made for a beauty salon.

I have been dreaming of creating such a floor for many years. And finally, my dream came true.

The total floor area is 56 sq. m. It took me five months to make it, and I worked seven days a week. I started on October 22nd, 2016 and finished on March 22nd, 2017. And that not counting the time for the material preparing and drying.

I used wind-fallen trees, some cut trees left after the fruit orchards thinning, and some trees were just brought by my friends. In the end, I had 40 bags of small wood pieces

So, I had such type of wood as: oak, Manchurian walnut, apricot tree, apple tree, pear tree, karagach, ash, birch, ash-tree maple, American walnut, cherry tree, larch, rowan and a little mahogany

The wood used for the “tree”: maple, birch, pine, larch, American cherry, pear, cherry, oak

For the background: apple, pear, apricot, Manchurian walnut, mahogany, oak, Siberian, Ukrainian oak, Hungarian beech, ash

I put the 10 mm plywood on a flat concrete subfloor and then glued the wood blocks on it

After the whole wooden part of the floor was ready, I started making the “birds”. I used broken ceramic tiles for that

Despite it was a long and very laborious process, it was a great pleasure for me, and I’ve never regretted that I started it

I love my occupation and I’m happy that I can come up with and implement such projects on my own

It's been a while since I last visited Boredpanda and someone made me say "Wow, now that's really beautiful" out loud. I don't want to belittle the other works posted here, but this one stands out imo. It'sot only beautiful to my eyes, but also to my heart, since you took what was given too you and made something new of stuff, many people would see as... clutter? And when I think of the discipline... wow. Just wow.

I wish you much success in all of your endeavors, sir. What you created is absolutely amazing and hopefully one day, you might consider giving lessons to others so that we can make using recycled wood and ceramics the standard in home renovations and in even becoming skilled volunteers for organizations such as Habitat for Humanity.
