Driftwood For Tables

Three new pieces came from Lois Lake today. #3 on the far left has a hollow in the front that lends itself to lighting or a plant. It is 41" tall, 30" wide and 15" deep.

#2 piece below would have part of it cut off to allow it to sit flush against a wall. It is 27" high, 41" wide and 17" deep.

#2 piece to the left showing its front.

#1 stands on edge but could be stood on its trunk to accomodate glass. It is 31" high, 31" wide and 16" deep.

All pieces could be cleaned up with just the roughness taken off and without a finish or they could be sanded and polished with oil. Your choice.

#1 is 31" high, 31" wide and 16" deep. It stands nicely on its side but with leveling could stand on its trunk with glass on top.

Update the Driftwood Business

It's been too long since you were updated about my business. Since last year we took the patio table and the glass topped table on our northern tour. It was an exciting time and for 115 days we covered Canada's great north all the way to the top to Tuktoyaktuk, NWT at 69 degrees north latitude. I was intrigued with the fact that not only isn't there any wood(no trees) but driftwood coming down the Mackenzie River is very valuable. Ancient peoples traded it with other communities for supplies. How I wished I had all my driftwood with me. Photo of Barb and I in Inuvik, NWT after driving the Dempster Highway 740 km of gravel to get there.
But that's another story so if you want to read about it go to: http://mytripjournal.com/rvcanadawithboo .

The patio table is in a loving home in Smithers but the glass topped one still sits proudly in my home and still for sale.

I am not gathering large pieces of driftwood unless by special order but if you have a request for something small made from driftwood by all means email me.
