MAKING OF MASS PIECES

Here is the first step of how I’ve been making the Massachusetts cutouts. I’ll post the other details when I come to them with this current batch.

All boards are either high quality Maple or supreme Poplar. Each is hand cut, stained, paint, and finished by me.

To get custom: email us at info@zamforia.com.

Step 1: SPRAY CUT OUT.
Tracing the stencil is too tedious and not any more detailed as a spray cut.

Step 2: CUT.
Before I cut, I’ll drill relief cuts with a paddle bit. When strategically placed, the cutting becomes a lot easier. After the drilling, out comes the jigsaw and a lot of patience.

Step 3: Sand, sand, sand.
First of all, the better the cutting the less sanding you’ll have to do. At this point sand is minimal but always needs to happen. When do you know the completely sanded? It never is. Keep sanding.

Next step: Initial stain. Then decoration. I’ll keep you posted….

I’ve been working on these boards off and on for the past month.  Read about my first ideas for this here and here.  

Each of these pieces are made on 1″ MDF particle board, shaped, spray painted, brush painted, and coated with 1/8″ thick epoxy resin for shine and lasting durability, each made one of a kind.  I’ll be continuing to make more of these pieces so stay tuned!
