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.

Curvaceous Driftwood

This curvaceous driftwood would make a great sign-post, a stand for an art piece or frame a piece of art or standing in the garden with trailing plants. I'll cut it down to your specifications or mount it on a base...your wish is my command...almost!

It stands 52" tall, 38" at its widest point. The curve's opening is 9" wide and 18" tall.

Wall Art

74"long, 18"wide, 5" deep

50" long,20"wide,12"deep

37" long,18" wide,16" deep
All these pieces can be cut to fit flat against a wall, or shortened as required. Sanding and oiling would bring out the natural beauty even more.

Driftwood sold across Canada

Since the last post,we've taken some of our driftwood, Barb's book"RV Canada On A Dime And A Dream" and 195 jars of brandied blackberry sauce on a 4 month cross country trip. We sold at markets, rodeos, pow-wows,and ended at an RV trade show. This beautiful piece decorated with baubles that's been on this page sold in Regina to a taxidermist. All my driftwood tables have sold along with many smaller pieces. Guess now I'll have to get busy and build more tables.

These pieces displayed currently could be used as wall hangings or garden ornaments. If there is a problem shipping them unfinished across the border(and still trying to get a straight answer on that), I'll clean them up and coat them with a natural oil.

Powell River driftwood is now in homes all across Canada. It could be in yours too.
With Christmas coming, if you are looking for a unique gift, put your order in now to have it in time.
