DIY Wall Art: How to Make a Cut-out Into Reclaimed Wood With a Picture Behind


In this Instructable I’m going to show you how I made an animal cut-out into reclaimed wood and placed a picture behind it.

I really enjoyed the process of creating this wall art, it was very easy and fun to make.

Check out my YouTube video for more detailed explanation!

Now, let’s begin!



Step 1: Making a Board Out of Pine Wood Flooring.

Picture of Making a Board Out of Pine Wood Flooring.

A bunch of pine wood flooring boards were sitting in my basement for a long time, I guess they were patiently waiting for me use them in some project. So, I took one board and decided to make a wall art.

I took my jigsaw, inserted the appropriate blade, and cut 5 pieces 32 cm long. Here I don’t have to be precise, because as soon as I join them together I’ll cut the entire board again in order to get straight lines.

Once I’m done with all the cuts, I can join them together using only a wood glue and some clamps. The best thing about this kind of wood flooring is that the boards have tongue and groove joints, which makes joining much easier.

I clamped a scrap wood across the pieces to flatten the surface of the board. Before doing anything else, I left it to dry out.
