This Christmas tree is made of Spalted Maple and is 4" tall.
One of 3 very special trees turned from the same piece of an old sugar maple tree.
This tree has an incredible graining and color, very precious. It is finished with lacquer and hand rubbed to a satin luster. Its 2 sisters are #507 & #508.
These handmade Christmas decorations are sure to be treasured family heirlooms.
They are turned on a lathe from local hardwoods.
Some of the wood sits outside my shop for a year while I let nature work on it and give it incredible colors.
Each has a fanciful shape.
This piece is turned from wood that came from a very old tree that stood on a country road for over 100 years. When it died it remained standing another 10 years before it was taken down. As a result it has incredible patterns in the grain of the wood, because it has such a unique grain this tree has a special hand rubbed lacquer finish to best show it off.
It is signed and numbered by the artist..
