This took over 80 hours, I worked on the limb and my husband worked on the base, and patching the cord wholes. It took both of us to form the limb to the base, it was all done free hand. We plan on buying a scribe from lee Valley tools to make it a bit easier to form this stuff

Candy,

This is another beautiful lamp. This is a very distinctive creation that you and your husband have produced.

Well done.

Candy,

Absolutely gorgeous! In the second (middle) photo, on the “foot” on the right-hand side of the base, I “see” a toe with a toe nail!

Jody, i am a self taught web developer and have pretty much learned everything by trial and error, if I needed an answer I would search the web for it. It does get tough and frustrating at times but then again I look at it as a learning experience and i like having to work to figure something out. The juniper is found right here here colorado as well as NM WYO Western Oregon and Utah, I am sure there are other places. The juniper in oregon is bigger and I dont think it has as much dry rot as we get here and of course the trees are huge where here they are more like over grown bushes. Not all juniper is twisted, we believe and have found in are area, that the more rough and rugged and windswept the terrain is, the more gnarly pieces we get. Some say it is from the dry hot and very cold cold….. I have grew up around juniper and up until about 4 years ago thought it was a very ugly useless tree UNTIL we saw what can be made of it. I guess everything has its beauty if you take the time to actaully look at it.

If you need some troubleshooting help with your website I would be glad to pass on some of what i know. Thanks again you are all so great!!!!
