I love working with wood! This is an example of work that makes my job a delight because I enjoy the artistic aspect.

These logs are gathered off the forest floor from private property. They must be selected like fruit; at the stage when the bark is almost completely dried itself off and yet there is still color in the wood. If left on the ground a few more months the wood will turn gray and if collected earlier the bark cannot be easily removed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The logs are sealed with clear sealer for a couple reasons: because the logs are dirty they will be quite a mess if not sealed and because natural wood is porous it absorbs dirt and oil from hands. Sealing it makes it easy to clean.
