Ponderosa Chandelier

For a while there I was really into Pintrest.  Eventually I realized I’d pretty much seen everything and moved on.  But it inspired this chandelier for our dining room, so it served its purpose.

The wood came from a local Ponderosa tree that had come down to make room for something new in our neighborhood.  A buddy of mine was chopping it up into firewood and another friend had access to a planer, so most of the hard work was already done by the time I started on it.  Some stain, poly and a set of hanging old-timey lightbulbs and it was finished.  We’ve since moved out of the forest into the city, so it has acquired a little more meaning, being a piece of our past lives as woodsy folk.
