See Life II, since the first one I have been working on another I love the flow of this piece. It stands six foot the base is made from a fur burl, (what a pitch) the center old growth red cedar and the orbs are from very spalted maple burl. Finish is rub on poly on the base, tung oil on the center and spray satin poly on the orbs.

Thanks lumber jocks

Spray “satan” poly, huh? I think I’m beginning to understand how you got so talented…
Went down to the crossroads and made a deal, didn’t ya?!

Another triumph, Jeffro. Simply stunning. If you run out of space and need a place to store it for a while…

It’s not just the beauty of your work… it is the combination of your piece and the photography… excellent.

Great job! Frankly I’d go to the crossroads if it meant having this kind of skill. haha

Can not quite express what this piece of art/craftsmanship makes me feel, but it is definitely good. It does
flow with the ocean, and your photography helps the image also. Thank you for sharing once again.

I’d have to agree with all of the positive comments above. This piece just flows so gracefully. It’s very soothing to look at. Of course, the backdrop doesn’t hurt either!

Quite a piece of artwork. Well done!
