New Reclaimed Wood

Whenever I get new reclaimed redwood, I am surprised by how different a medium like wood can be. Each board offers one snapshot of an amazing variety of potential colors, grain, knots, and cracks. Certain pieces of wood show right away what they "want to be" in their new life as a sculpture (e.g. the unique circled grain of the Bubbles sculpture), others are more shy about it and it takes me a while to discover what I want to do with it. Take a look at a sample of boards I got a few weeks ago.
