One of the boxes will have custom made dowel plugs, made from exotic, local or reclaimed lumber artistically arranged in its surface. Each student will cut their own dowel plugs. In order to create the pattern shown in the photo, there will be approximately 4-8 different woods used.

Principles of Art and Design (size, scale, color, contrast, proportion etc.) will be discussed and demonstrated.

If time permits, additional techniques will be demonstrated, such as, cutting squares and strips, checkerboard patterns etc.
