Electric Fireplace Takes On Natural Look
Project: Electric Fireplace Surround – Wrap
Material: Local Blue Pine
Design Challange: Add visual warmth and distinctive design to an electric fireplace.
A custom client wanted their electric fireplace to take on the natural personalitry of their mountain cabin. Together we chose a local blue pine wood that complimented the existing features of this cozy hidaway.
Using the Blue Pine live edge pieces provided a heavy timbered look. We acquired excellent grains and character in the finished product.
The clients design requirements were met using my artisans approach to a pratical design problem.
“Live edge or natural edge is a style of furniture where I incorporate the natural edge of the wood into the design of the piece. Live edge furniture often takes advantage of the personality of gnarly wood, such as Alligator Juniper, mesquite, blue pine and salvaged wood that would be difficult to use in conventional woodworking.
