Using wood to create 3-Dimensional art (Part I)

For this project the students used a variety of wood strips to create a 3-Dimensional art work.
The students had a choice to create an objective or a non-objective piece of work.   
It was interesting to watch the students as they were trying to decide on what wood pieces they needed to use in order to build their wood composition.
