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.
