Welcome to LJ’s. I really like the bark, gives it a very rustic look.

Welcome to the most addictive site on the net, at least for woodworkers. How did you get the bark to stay on or will it peel later? Something I’d like to know for future projects. Thanks for the post, BTKS

To keep the bark on? The tree needs to be cut off the stump when the sap is down… winter time…

that’s sweet !!!! Love the bark.
Someone posted something a while ago about a technique to make sure the bark stays on.. can’t remember what the tip was, though.

Great job!! Keep “messing” around in the shop. I like these.

Cool picture frame. Beautiful (in a rustic sort of way)

Nice use of scrap.

well im a lover of the rustic stuff, so these look great to me..i love the live edge on things…to me it like the ouside flesh and tells more of the story on the tree then just the wood on the inside…...good job …

Leaving the bark on is a lot more of a challenge than one might think. Nice job.
