Maple Ribbon

This was a challenge piece. The ribbon was constructed from a block of maple identical to the block that acts as the base. The following words are pierced around the ribbon.

My name is maple
I grew in a big tree

For 50 years
I yearned to be free

As a block of wood sitting on a shelf
I always hoped to express myself

Thanks to a woodturner
who revealed my potential

I can now say
I'm no longer inconsequential

15" tall
