This is another one of my “deadhead” cypress creations although this one is more sculpture than functional. The metal buzzard is by a member of the Kentucky Craft Council. I often incorporate his pieces with the wood. Throne is about 64 inches high, banded with faux hammered iron ( it’s really galvanized flat strap finished with a mix of black enamel and powdered graphite. Tough stuff.) and cowhide seat. For more on deadhead lumber visit my cypress curio cabinet project.
