I built this chair for the entrance of a home. Cedar burl for the seat pan, cedar and fur roots form the rest of the chair. I incorporated old glass fishing floats for a cool effect.

Thanks for looking

Another cool creation that you have come up with. I like the fishing floats as the accents.

Looks like it washed right in with the tide. Fit for a King.

The entire chair is a cool effect, you really do have an ability to take found wood, that does not look like
much and artistically assembling it until the whole is greater than any of the parts could have been. Your
scenery and photography can not be faulted either. Thank you for sharing and once again leaving me
looking and wishing.

As always, stunning. This one makes me think of King Neptune’s chair – from the fishing floats to the “crown” at the top of the back. Spectacular!

What can I say that would not be an echo of all the above?
How about this? Your work is as correct in a fine home as it would be in a small, sun dappled clearing the in middle of an ancient forest.
You have an incredible talent for capturing the powerful movement and delicate tracery of a morning tide dressing across a time forgotten shore.

And, that is all I can say…

Thank you for inspiring me to continue.

Peace and blessed be.

Another great piece, and a perfect complement for the previous bench.

Thanks for sharing another of your creations. I like the glass float ball captured in the chair, if that’s what it is.
I would love to have access to all that material, and I regret passing stuff like it by while walking through the great clear cuts, and beaches over on the Olympic Peninsula. I am not saying anything I would have made, would have been as nice as your creations. I am amazed at you creativity.

Lovely, lovely, lovely! I can’t help but wonder if it is as comfortable as it looks and this certainly does pleases the eye! Wonderful creation.

I’ve seen lots of sculptured furniture, probably not near all that’s out there, but, you my friend, hands down, put together the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever seen.
The swirls and those glass balls, wow, great details.
Glad you are sharing, great to see your creations…...................

Well done Jeffro. Another beauty. What do your chairs weigh and how do you move them around.
