Well done as always.

Beautiful table lamp. The colours in the base and shade work well together. It’s a winner!

More than amazing, checked out the web site. so impressed with how the wood grows, must be from high altitude windy areas. Never seen anything like it. For a wood worker, a true gold nugget. Bet you had to register a claim.

Wow, thank you all so much for the kind and encouraging feedback, you guys are all amazing and it is such a pleasure to share our work on here.

Kaleb the Swede: this is a gorgeous lamp, and I really didn’t see the “movement” in it until I took the pictures. I am not sure if it reminds me of a dancer or a dolphin. It just seems to move without moving.

bushmaster: we live in the nw corner of colorado, elevation 5900ft so we are considered the high desert. We noticed that most of the super twist juniper grows on ridges where the terrain is wild or a lot of rocks and yes it does get windy here. Most juniper grows straight and is used for fence posts because it a hard. Juniper is abundant around here but the twisty pieces take a lot of work to find. Luckily it is on public ground and we get a wood permit for it and we are also able to access private ground where we find some amazing pieces.

Thank you all again and hope that you have a wonderful day. Working with juniper makes everyday feel like Christmas, it is a true gift and a privilege to work with.
