Specialty pieces take form as an order is placed or as it begins to “appear” in the wood…. I looked at this badly cracked and split piece of walnut for a very long time not knowing what I would do with it. I knew there was some thing good in there but how to get at it. Then it came to me. Carve it down into a lamp Easy does it The more I carved, the more the grain popped out Where a limb protruded Back side It was sitting here un-finished when it was bought by one of my best customers!!! Just needs the finishing touches. Backside of base Lampshade will be chosen by new owner. Finished product, found itself a home! Warm glow to all around it. Finished product, found itself a home! Beautiful even when the light is off!
