Geometric Fox

The Find

It doesn’t get much more straight forward than this. I found a nice clean piece of 3.5″ x .75″ scrap pine and a nasty piece of who knows what wood that was attached to the bottom of a cardboard box for structural support. The thing I loved about the nasty wood, was the texture. That texture inspired this whole build!

The Build

After looking for some geometric animal art inspiration online, I made myself a pattern in Illustrator, printed it and cut it out. I traced each of the pattern pieces on the furry wood and cut them out on a band saw. I used a second pattern to layout my cuts and sand each newly cut piece of wood so everything was a bit more even. I glued two pieces of the pine together to make the back and stained it. I painted each of the fox pieces with acrylic paint. I once again used the uncut fox pattern to position where I wanted to place the fox on the back with a few light pencil marks and then glued everything together. That’s it, a super cute geo fox was born.

What's AlleyLux?

AlleyLux is a passion project started by me, Mike Alonzo. I've always struggled with waste and even flirted with hoarding. There is just so much usable material discarded everyday, that I figured I would try and do something with it. I explore my neighborhood alleys liberating junk, or as I like to call it, potential, in an effort to give it new life.
