I’ve discovered a wall sculpture jig that has elevated the precision of my wall sculpture layouts to a new level.
I was first drawn to studying the Kreg jigs, then found the Rockler catalog online and saw that this jig would be better.
I used to only use thin copper laminated to 1/2″ plywood for my wall sculptures because I knew I could cut it myself with a scroll saw. At the time, my concept of an artist required me to do everything myself, which precluded my having someone else do my cutting for me. This was when I was just starting with my wall sculpture puzzle designs in 2000. I cut all my copper-wood laminates by hand with a scroll saw and as thin a blade as possible.
This stair-step aluminum wall sculpture was recently shipped to Creative Metal Products in San Jose, CA. The owner was a great pleasure to work with. Here’s what he wrote: “We received the sculpture safely and it looks perfect! Attached is a picture file of the sculpture in our office. It’s been a fun experience in that the piece is just right in all respects, and you’ve been good to work with.
