Wormy Wood Desks

I just love the shape of this piece with perfect branching.

Though I am still working on what day each week I will post, or if I want to specify that, I have been working on a couple of new projects that will be available in my Etsy store when I am finished. I enjoy working with raw wood and discarded wood to create furniture. I love the back-and-forth development of design and creation as you go through the wood to find the right pieces then update or redo the design to work with your primary pieces then the other parts as you find and prepare them. I began this type of work years ago, my mother had several of my pieces that I had offers for but designed for her.

These are pieces of 2 furniture pieces I am working on

Currently, I am working on a Wormy Wood Laptop Desk or end table with shelf and mosaic tile, and on another one that will either be a coffee table or another small desk, I  have not chosen all of the wood yet and am still developing that one.

I am Cleaning and prepping the wood. Currently, it is a little dark from the treatment to make sure nothing lives in it now. Wormy wood is a lot of time and work.

The base piece of wood has perfect branching for a drink shelf and for a paper shelf.

the base for the tile is also a reclaimed piece, but from a remodel job not raw wood.

The other piece I am working on is not a pedestal style and has smaller legs as you see above. I am cleaning the wood and prepping it by hand. I use as many old, often antique, hand tools as I can because I not only enjoy them, I respect the tools and the quality of work.
