WOOD 'n GLASS - Trees of Life Gallery
Trees of life are circles of wood cut from a tree trunk. Deb never cuts down a tree. Instead she scavenges for trees that have fallen during storms or have been cut for other reasons.
With the help of a friend and a chain saw, the trunk is cut into 3/4 inch thick rings.
Once the tree rings have thoroughly dried, Deb uses a scroll saw to cut out the silhouette of a tree.
Then she uses a rotary carving tool to add details and sand the tree.
Once the wood has been sealed, Deb adds a piece of stained glass to give it a background.
