This oil lamp was made from a maple burl meaning it has an uncharacteristic grain, figure, eyes, and rays. This makes it a striking piece. It measures 6" at its widest point and 2 1/2 " high. The glass chimney is 3" in diameter, 9" high, and sits in an inset in the base. Therefore the total height of the piece is 11"*. It was sanded to 12,000 grit and finished with a mixture of orange oil and beeswax giving it a smooth finish and soft luster.

No one is sure what causes burls to form on a tree. It is suspected that they may be formed due to stress or injury. Burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood, prized for its beauty by many; its rarity also adds to its expense. It is sought after by furniture makers, artists, and wood sculptors. Burl wood is very hard to work with hand tools or on a lathe because its grain is twisted and interlocked, causing it to chip and chatter unpredictably. This "wild grain" makes burl wood extremely dense and adds to is character.

This oil lamp was made from a maple burl meaning it has an uncharacteristic grain, figure, eyes, and rays. This makes it a striking piece. I did not make this piece with a glass chimney in order to save several inclusions in the blank. One can be seen in the photo above, and these add great character to the already intriguing grain of the burl. The piece measures 3.75 inches hight and is 3.5 inches in diameter at its widest point.

These candle sticks are made from spalted maple and stand 5" tall and 2 1/2" inches in diameter at the base. As with any 100% handmade set of candle sticks they are very similar in shape, but there are slight variations as I do not use a duplicator or other such machinery in my work. I have placed them close together in the picture so this can be seen, but as soon as they are separated the differences are not noticeable. (Candles are included)
