Ribbon Chair

I can only imagine how exhausting battling an enemy like cancer can be and this beast has entered my world three times now in the past year. Brian contacted me to work on this special project of two chairs for Colleen. Congratulations Colleen for kicking Non-Hodgkin lymphoma's ass. I'd like to think beating cancer has never smelled so good.

They are Awesome!!

 The color can be changed to reflect any awareness. Cancer, autism, supporting our troops, etc.

Here is how it's done. 
1. The ribbon shape is routed into the cedar at three separate depths. This adds dimension to the shape.

2. After sanding the rough edges the wood is painted three shades of the color. Again this adds to the ribbon's depth.

3. An epoxy resin is poured into the shape and hardens to a glossy finish protecting the color and shape for years to come.
