You can never have too much driftwood

That’s my response to Nikki every time I go over to the coast to bring back some new pieces & she tries to convince me I already have enough to last the rest of my life.   I used to be able to collect it myself off the remote interior islands on Florida’s Gulf Coast but it grew too difficult.  Fortunately I was able to find a local man who’s been gathering & selling driftwood his entire life.  Each time I’ll spend several hours examining each piece to be able to select the choice ones for me to create my driftwood furniture.DSC_0097 DSC_0096 DSC_0104 DSC_0105With so many recent inquiries for dining tables I was hoping to acquire some of those larger unique stumps that I could put together in the coming months. I was in luck as he had some very nice large root systems & I was able to load up my trailer.DSC_0110The next day back at my shop as I was unloading my treasure I already could visualize what I think will be some very nice driftwood coffee & dining tables. After our last art show of the season next weekend in Englewood, I hope to start the process of restocking my depleted table inventory & filling the orders my customers have graciously commissioned me to create.
