Made from locally felled trees, such as Dimocarpus longan (longan), Averrhoa carambola (carambola), Psidium guajava L. (guava), Michelia x alba DC (white jade orchid), and Mangifera indica L. (mango) salvaged from MaPoPo Community Farm. This work is a physical imprint of how tree logs can be processed into sawn timber planks, resembling the practice of stickering wood during the drying process.
Stickering wood stacks allow better airflow while maintaining even pressure throughout to limit cupping or warping. This work combines three sawn timber types resulting from cutting tree logs in different orientations relative to the pith and growth rings—rift sawn, plain sawn, and quarter sawn. Each sawn timber type exhibits a different grain orientation in the wood, which is evident in its visual characteristics and physical properties.
