Description:

I made this tree by gluing together several pieces of redwood. It's redwood that previously lined the walls of a beach house in Pinellas County Florida. The side of the boards that faced out were painted a color I can only describe as 'aged'. My guess is it was originally a pale shade of cream. Regardless, it was a joy to push the boards through the planer and see that aged pain disappear.

Even after passing repeatedly through the planer the boards still retained a few great features that add character to the vase. There are some nail holes and a few dents. In addition since the tree is made of many boards instead of one block, it has a unique layered look which shows off the variety of grain patterns and color variations.
