pyrography portraitsI would blame the heat for sitting on my butt in the A/C while drawing with a hot metal tip but maybe it's just laziness. I'm practicing at replicating photos since I've been semi retired and have some time on my hands. I'm also thinking that people might actually pay for personal or pet portrait burnings even though I've not tried to market or sell anything, that may have to change. But that's a whole other subject. These images are from many years ago in their younger days. If you can't identify them you are not welcome in my shop.

Live Edge tables

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Live Edge tablesBack in 2017, I had an opportunity to take a class on working with live edge slabs. I had decided on tables for my family room, but had a very hard time with a design that my wife also liked. My wife seemed to think Live edge would give our home to much of a cabin feel. In the end she found a table on pinterest that she liked. It has the live edge, but she said not to rustic. So that set the style of the project.
The tables are made from Alligator Juniper, with Walnut legs.
The first three tables, (two end tables, and a sofa table) were made in the class back in 2017.
The three table tops are from a single slab. About 1.75” thick. And the lower shelf was from two thin boards that I was able to book match.Then just a couple weeks ago, 8/2019, I finished the fourth and final table. A entertainment/ TV stand.
Made from the same wood. The lower shelf was in rough shape, and took a fair amount of epoxy to fill in the voids.So back up to 2017. All I had was a pinterest photo that was a dead end link. Just as I finished the fourth table, and was responding to another forum here on LJ about live edge work. I stumbled across the photo that had inspired this whole project. This time that photo took me to Corey Morgan Wood works.
Here is a link to his Instagram, and contact info. He is a full time woodworker, and turning out some amazing work.

And here is a photo of his table that inspired it all.
