Cityscapes Created From Discarded Wood Scraps [Pics]

Design studio McNabb & Co. creates intricately detailed scenes for their ‘City Series’ using pieces of scrap wood and a band saw. There is a table that looks like an upside down city, a wheel with buildings rising from the edge, and architectural canvases.
The wood sculptures depict “the outsider’s perspective of the urban landscape”, with each piece cut intuitively on a band saw, resulting in a collection of different architectural forms.
The design studio has received lots of positive feedback for the series and has turned to Kickstarter to raise funding to make the next generation of pieces for the collection. Their aim is to double the size of the collection with new city sculptures and exhibit the work.
People can pledge money for the campaign to receive unique hand-crafted buildings, ranging from a single building for $10 up to a metropolis of 125 buildings for $475. Click through to see images of the city-inspired wooden sculptures:
