its been awhile since we have seen anything, so its a real treat to see this, its a beauty, i look at it and try to imagine the work it takes to orchestrate all the different pieces to come up with a work of art like this, its amazing…

I scribe all the pieces together, one of my favorite tools for scribing is the Galahad by king Aurthur tools.
Each piece takes a wile to fit and then ill counter sink a screw and plug with dowels I make, or sometimes just using dowels.

Chair? That is more like a throne! A well conceived, beautiful form indeed.

Jeffro,

You are a master of your medium. Thanks for the insight you shared with Grizzman. I think my favorite description of your pieces is “WOW, I wish I’d done that!”

How long did this piece take?

Jeffro,
How do you finish these driftwood pieces? What type of finish and how do you apply it?
