There’s a fund raiser every year here in the northeast at the Crane Estate in Ipswich, Mass. It’s also called Castle Hill because it’s a castle up on a hill. I found some driftwood on this estate’s private beach and made this for their fundraiser. It’s 28 1/2 inches high, 16 inches wide at its widest point, on a 9 inch walnut base. The finishes are satin polyurethane.

If anyone undertakes a driftwood carving, try to cover or protect the driftwood that you won’t be carving to avoid affecting the natural beauty of the driftwood. Too much handling will deteriorate the uncarved driftwood surfaces. I also found out that only applying the finish to the carved areas maintains the natural beauty of the uncarved driftwood surfaces.
