Artist and sculptor James McNabb creates absolutely stunning cityscapes that are carved into the wood of circular and abstract sculptures. Every piece he creates is made from reclaimed discarded wood and the intricate skyline carvings are deftly carve with a process he calls “sketching with a bandsaw”.

James McNabb produces one of a kind cityscape-inspired wood sculptures that explore the limitless possibilities of the urban landscape and our human relationship to it. Traditional woodworking techniques are combined with experimental mark making to create new visions of the urban landscape. …McNabb blends traditional woodworking techniques with experimental mark making using a bandsaw. This intuitive process, referred to as “sketching with a bandsaw” allows the artist to generate forms rapidly, working through new and exciting ideas without preliminary design development.

  1. First saw McNabb’s work in an issue of Fine Woodworking a year or so ago. Amazingly detailed and intricate work. Also a perfect answer to the “what to do with this cut-off scrap” question that all workers-of-wood face.

    And now that his work is being featured on Adafruit….maybe its time to throw some neo-twinklies on a couple of those scapes?
