My Old Wood and Doorknob Art Piece

bemused carpenters with my wood art

making the piece

sanding the edges

the final artwork

Yesterday I decided to create a some wall art for my flat, based on an old piece of blue wood I found in the road here in Dahab and seven Middle Eastern style doorknobs.

One has the words "Hamdullah" or "thanks for everything we receive from God" and another is inscribed simply with "Allah".

I kind of like that philosophy for my new home.

The carpenters didn't understand the concept of using old wood rather than new until one of them came to my flat to put up the completed piece. He then loved it and wanted me to make more!

A fun evening... :-)
