4 Birch Wall Panel

04-Tutorials-Using

Birch Wall Panel: Birch poles sliced into disks and glued to plywood panels create a graphic wall mosaic. Strategically placed longer pieces can be used as hooks for bags and artwork.Purchase crosscut birch rounds at a garden center, or have poles cut into disks at a lumberyard. Ours range in depth from 3/4 to 1 1/2 inches to give the wall some texture. To create hooks for hanging coats or bags, you will also need a few longer pieces (4 to 8 inches). The disks are applied to plywood panels; create several panels (no greater than 4 by 5 feet) rather than a single large one so that the boards don’t buckle or pull away from the wall.
