Live Edge Guitar Hanger Fractal Art
Inspirational Musician: Bruce Springsteen

INSPIRATION:  The creative design behind each live edge guitar hanger is based on the musicians I admire in my life that made an impact and inspired me to play the guitar. It’s my token of appreciation for creating great music of my generation. Keep on ROCKING!

LIVE EDGE WOOD:
The natural edges, wavy grain lines, quilting, unique colors, knots and bark inclusions are the characteristics that define live edge wood. Each wood slab has specific feature and will vary from log to log milled. The pictures shown on this page is evident of the varying difference in grain patterns and characteristics of the wood. This is what makes live edge wood so distinctive and special. Please contact garie@gccreativeworks.com for ordering and availability information.
WOOD MATERIAL:
Arizona grown desert hardwood is uniquely hand-crafted and custom designed from weathered-down trees found in the suburban metropolitan Phoenix area. By acquiring desert hardwood logs from tree services and individuals, allows me to create 100% sustainable, repurposed live edge wood designs. Both sides of the slab goes to a router sled table to obtain desired flat surface and thickness. As the wood slab ages, noticeable cracks on the wood may appear due to its natural dry cracking process and changes in humidity and temperature. Any voids or cracks from the wood are sealed with epoxy to maintain integrity of the wood.
FRACTAL DESIGN: A process of applying 20,000 volts of electricity to the wood surface recreating a lightning strike in slow motion as well as unique abstract figures, tree and vein like shapes.
EPOXY: Self-leveling high gloss U.V. resistant formula epoxy with choice of color pigment or clear is added to seal the burns created during fractal art process on the surface of the wood.
EPOXY COLORS: For fractal art designs:
AQUA MARINE, ARMY GREEN, BLACK, CARDINAL RED, CARIBBEAN BLUE, DOVE GRAY, EMERALD METALLIC, GOLDEN YELLOW, HAWAIIAN BLUE, KELLY GREEN MAROON, NEON GREEN, ORANGE, PINK, PURPLE, RED, ROYAL BLUE, TEAL, TURQUOISE BLUE, VEGAS GOLD, WHITE.
OIL FINISH: Hand rubbed finish using Old Masters clear satin gel polyurethane to bring out the natural beauty of wooden surfaces.
STRING SWING HARDWARE:
The new design, known as the “Guitar Keeper”, has a deep cradle design that prevents the guitar from being improperly placed into the hanger. This ultimately provides a safer hanger for your instrument, as the guitar needs to be lifted 2 inches and brought forward to be removed. The pivoting yoke allows for Electric, Acoustic or Bass guitar headstocks to be cradled perfectly while still hanging straight. Made in the USA.
DESIGN ENGINEERING:
Garie Chavez has researched and tested the use of proper hardware for mounting the String Swing guitar hanger to live edge wood materials. A threaded insert made of carbon steel zinc plated finished goes into predrilled hole and has internal threads. It offers a strong permanent thread to
live edge hardwood and mount the guitar hanger yoke. Mounting hardware included with two drywall anchors and two 2-inch Phillips wood screws.
