These are a few items completed recently for a craft show I attended as a vendor.
The first pic is of 2 maple benches, a cypress plant stand and 3 cypress clocks. The maple previously resided in my side yard but was causing some serious drainage problems. The benches are 30” and 42” long, 18” high, have cedar legs and are finished with Spar Urethane. The cypress plant stand and clocks are all of reclaimed cypress with 4 coats of bar finish/epoxy. In all we made 6 benches, 15 of the clocks and 4 of the cypress tables.
The Split Log Rustics sign is something I routed on a piece of spalted maple and was the top of a sign post for the craft show.
The 2nd pic is of a commissioned pet bed (a very large pet bed – 36” x 54”!). It’s made of northern white cedar and red cedar. It’s sized for a posture-pedic mattress. It’s finished with BLO.
The 3rd pic is a cherry burl accent table my son and I built. He wanted it to look like a pier. The knot-work is various lashings including a mast-head knot (and navy folks out there?). The legs are cedar with red cedar plugs. The finish is Spar Urethane.
