Main Category: Furniture
Sub Category: Other
Dollar Amount: Under $25,000
What materials/species were used in this project/item?
I used a reclaimed cedar root, reclaimed pine boards, tempered custom glass, authentic elk antlers, pine cones, a rock where one had been embedded originally, and Minwax oil-based poly.
Describe, in detail, the project/item’s construction.
I used my Husqvarna chainsaw, a band sawmill, my Festool sander, a sandblaster, my Grizzly planer, jointer, and table saw, and my Porter Cable router.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
This is a very unusual piece in general. I designed it for the Red Canyon Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. They auctioned off at the annual dinner. It raised $3,800. The national chapter has asked us to do one for the Vegas show in December.
List any items that were outsourced.
I gave the glass company a template, and they cut the glass and had it tempered for me. The rest I did in house.
How being a member of the CMA has benefited you and/or your business.
We have not only enjoyed getting to know other members, but we also have had wonderful advertising as a result of the CMA Wood Diamond contests. It was great meeting other members in Atlanta at the IWF, too!
