“Purple Rain” with matching corbels

I’m fortunate to live in a northern hardwood forest where I have access to extraordinary timber. A local logger/ miller friend of mine puts aside special unique logs that show the most beautiful unique figured character. Then he ages them for a year, mills them into mantel slabs instead of his usual boards, and passes them on – only to Mendota Mantels! I’m very lucky to know him! (Thank You John!)

This is one of those rare pieces. It’s a “Live edged” hard red maple with matching corbels. It’s quite figured. Rare. I sculpted the live edge smooth as you can see.

I’ve long wanted to make a piece in honor of Prince. This is that piece – finally!

“Prince Purple”! Why not? It’s a pretty color in any case wouldn’t you say?
