Live Edge Mesquite Guitar Stand Fractal Art

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.
GUITAR STAND:
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. 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 the integrity of the wood. Size: 45”L, 6-8” W, 1-1-1/2”T
GUITAR BASE: Arizona grown desert hardwood pyramid shape style prevents the stand from tipping forward, backward or side to side. Size: 12-15”, 1-1-1/2” thickness.
FRACTAL ART:
Applying 20,000 volts of electricity to the wood surface to recreate a lightning strike in slow motion as well as unique abstract figures, tree and vein like shapes.
EPOXY INLAY:
Any voids or cracks from the wood are sealed with epoxy to maintain the integrity of the wood. Epoxy inlay with clear or color pigment is also use to seal the burns created during fractal art process on the surface of the wood.
EPOXY COLORS:
Color pigment 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.
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.
OIL FINISH:
Hand rubbed finish using Old Masters gel polyurethane clear satin gel and John Boos mystery oil. It brings out the natural beauty of wooden surfaces; durable coating for use on wood surfaces and contains ultraviolet absorbers for advanced sun protection.
COMPLETION TIMELINE:
Please allow 5-7 days to complete from the time order is received. Made in North Peoria, Arizona.
PRICE: $525 (Shipping Free in the USA)
