LIVE EDGE WILLOW ACACIA CENTERPIECE FRACTAL ART

WOOD GRAIN VARIATION:
Please read the description prior to purchasing this item. Trees are living, breathing organisms. As a result even within the same species there can be large differences due to nutrient conditions, soil content, water supply and it’s own DNA. Each live edge wood is unique and will vary from log to log milled. Every wood art is custom made to order and not mass produced. The pictures shown on this page is evident of the varying difference in grain patterns and characteristics of the wood. This is what makes this live edge wood art so distinctive and special. If you have any questions, please call or email.

DESCRIPTION:
Arizona grown
WILLOW ACACIA 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. This prevents some logs from being taken to the landfill. Both sides of the wood go to a router sled table to obtain desired flat surface and thickness. As the wood 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.
