„THE ORIGIN“ made by NicoRayf / 2010 / european beech – Egelsee / Krems an der Donau, Austria

8kg, length: 106cm / height: 115cm / width: 27cm including wheels, diameter: top 6cm / bottom 9cm, distance between the trucks: 60cm.

The spaces for the trucks were cut with simple tools, such as axes, saws and files. The branch was deliberately not painted or varnished, in order to observe the natural process of decay. After 4 years of continuous riding in all conditions and seasons, cracks have started to appear, on account of the drying process. Numerous crashes have also taken their toll in the form of chipped bark, scratches, friction points, etc. Some areas of the surface have been polished by the direct contact of gripping- they are shiny.
