DIY Geometric Wood Wall Art Tutorial

Hey guys, so we made a geometric wood wall art for our home using just regular lumber. This build mostly involves a lot of cutting, mitering, nailing and gluing.

So, there are a lot of measurements and it can be a bit intimidating if you’re a beginner DIYer, but if you follow all the steps correctly, I promise you that you’ll be able build this beautiful art piece.

The measurements and plans for this build are available below for free.

Plan for building the Geometric Wall Art

How To Build The Wooden Geometric Wall Art

Step 1: The outer size of this wall art piece would be 35 ½ by 35 ½ inches. And all the pieces used in this build have the same section, which is 1 ¼ inch by ¾ inch. and the lengths are of course different for most pieces.

Step 2: We started with wood that is 1 inch by 2 inch wide and sized it to 1 ¼" by ¾" from there. You can buy 1" x 2" furring strips from homedepot and plane it slightly to get it to the right size as per plan.

Step 3: We cut down and planed down all the pieces. And then mitered the edges of the pieces as per the plan.

Step 4: It’d be really helpful if you can actually draw the pattern for this wall art on a large sheet of paper. we did that and it was super helpful to get the sizes for cutting it right.

Step 5: We laid down all the pieces we cut out, on the paper to see if everything was correct. Thankfully, all of them fitted correctly during the dry fit, and it gave us the confidence to go ahead with the glue up.

Step 6: Alright, so once the dry fit was successful, we glued each edge and nailed it to the piece near it. So when you are doing the nailing, notice that it is not possible to nail every piece individually, so you need to fit each part separately outside and then fit them together.

Step 7: After joining all the pieces correctly we sanded it to 220 grit using the random orbital sander.

Step 8: Once that was done, we applied Varathane water based PU to coat finish the geometric wall art piece.
