This piece is one of the first ones I did using jute twine as a binder for the beaverwood versus rawhide. Rawhide is optimal however is very time consuming to procure and I am opposed to purchasing any at this time. Also recycled cedar fence boards make the surface. I guess all of my materials/mediums are recycled or reclaimed. Couple of reasons and they are, I’m cheap and its unique, interesting and one of a kind. The natural beauty of beaver chewed wood is fantastic in color,texture and history. Each piece is a celebration of nature and by placing together natural organic forms (beaverwood) I honor the animal for all of its amzaming attributes.

I honor the animal too, I got a leather coat with a sheared beaver collar, ooooh soft and warm.

Great job. I wish I had the skill for alternate materials.

Great table!

Our lake here in Kentucky, has thawed and I saw my first beaver this morning.
We are near the Licking River, which is a major beaver highway.

We call their woodworking products beaver-gnaw.

You do some nice work, I love the color, do you put a finish on them or are they just left natural. I really like this little table but that wine rack is amazing.

Looks like a juried piece for the Western Design Conference to me!

Thanks for all the great comments, to answer a few things, everything that hasnt been given away or sold still can be, and yes beaver fur is soft and warm, I have trapped many, I also hunt and fish as I do live in ND. Alternate materials is somthing you have to enjoy working with and beaverwood is a word I use however beaver-gnaw or beaver-chew or beaver-sticks also all apply. As for a finish I most always use a clear satin oil based poly. I have tried other things and am always looking to the future and new possiblities when sealing. I just started promoting myself and WDC may very well be in my future. Thanks again for all your wonderful comments and I would also like to add I have been looking at your work as well and WOW! WOW! WOW! you people ROCK!
