I saved these burley fur roots for a few years until I figured I had enough for a project. The back is birds eye redwood and the seat is birds eye cedar burl, kind of hard to find. I added a before shot of the pile of parts you can kind of see were it came from.

Beautiful work. You are an artisan.

I have a question…...how do you “jig” up a project like that? Also do you sandblast everything?

How much time do you have in a project like this?

Wow, Your work is always impressive. The change from the materials you started with to the finish product is just fantastic. I live over 1000 miles from the ocean, but looking at your chair makes me want to go to a lake or river and see what I can find to make something from. Great job.

Jeffro, That is one nice looking chair. The first picture makes it look like some kind of inspired organic monument. I really like your work, thanks for sharing.
One thing that I must do, like a bucket list thing, is to drive over to your neck of the woods and see one of these creations for myself.

I just can’t hardly even look anymore. I see the poster and I have to brace myself. It’s insanely gorgeous, just as I expected.

edit: to echo blackcherry below. I actually find it difficult to look at because it’s so beautiful. It’s like sensory overload or something. I’m serious!

Looking at that last picture to try to see where it came from just proves how good an artisan you are. It
must be wonderful to be able to peel the exterior off that wood and let the beauty show through and then
have the patience to move those jigsaw pieces around and shape them until you have just the right fit and
your project becomes a work of art. Thank you for sharing, and encouraging me to look for the beauty in
wood.

I feel very privileged to have seen this in person, stroked it, and sat in it – like a mermaid princess!
Jeffro, you are one-of-a-kind. Karen
