Curly Maple Frame

One of Wayne's recently finished frames, 27" x 41 x 1" overall, opening size of 18.75" x 30".  Wood is highly figured Curly Maple with linseed oil and beeswax giving it a smooth hand rubbed satin finish.  The frame is now handed off to Pam.  Already she has some ideas for a piece that will compliment the frame. Wayne sees the frame's Japanese influence calling for a subdued moon with wind blown long grasses.  What will Pam see?  Watch this space....

A unique one of a kind American Basswood Hollow Log is now displayed in our home gallery.  Basswood is known as a bee tree for it's very early season nectar source, and for it's commonly found hollow structure utilized by wild bees for hives.  The four shelves are raw edged White Pine.  The attached base is Hemlock. All locally sourced wood.  Dimensions:  6' 2 1/2" high X 34" wide X 18" deep; base is 40" wide X 21 1/2" deep.  Email Wayne for more information.
