Slabcutting tree trunk for handcrafted furniture

The wood that Michael McDunn and gallery wood artists use comes from numerous sources, more than half comes from felled trees and other discovered or reclaimed wood. This big trunk section was brought by flat-bed truck from a nearby donation. Tree wood is normally donated by individuals who don’t want to see it burned or otherwise wasted. If a tree dies or should be removed, this is a great way to see that it has a long-term afterlife. Its elements can turn into heirloom furniture and artwork, and exist for generations.
