Yellow Cedar Stump

$495.00


People often wonder why they would pay big money for a piece of wood they can find on the beach… It’s no easy task to salvage beautiful pieces of driftwood. Not only are they heavy but you need to ensure the wood is not rotten, then you need to cut the piece with precision and be able to recognize and identify the wood. Yellow cedar is becoming more and more rare, especially a piece with this diameter. Not only all of the above but wood like this that has been salvaged or reclaimed needs to be kiln dried and I am sure most of us don’t have kiln driers at home that heat up to over a 1000 degrees farenheit. Once that’s done, the wood needs to be carefully sanded and finished with many layers of stain or shellac or lacquer so that it can look as handsome and fabulous as this special piece.  We love using these stumps as side tables or cocktail tables or has a place for a table lamp or for stacking coffee table books or magazines. A very special, custom-made piece offered at $895. These truly are one of a kind works of art.
