Wood Christmas Tree in Sugar Maple – Item 558
This Christmas tree is made of Sugar Maple and is 8-3/4" tall.
These handmade Christmas decorations are sure to be treasured family heirlooms.
They are turned on a lathe from local hardwoods.
This piece is turned from an old sugar maple tree that stood on a country road for over 100 years in front of Jessup's orchard . 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. It has started to spalt, but is still very hard and has a beautiful soft texture with flashes of color.
It is finished with several coats of carefully hand rubbed lacquer finish to best show it off.
It is signed and numbered by the artist.
