The treasure lies within

From an old reclaimed piece of timber, I was able to create a beautiful handmade 3D star puzzle. This Doug Fir beam came from a falling down horse barn in Northern New Mexico and was destined for the dump or burn pile. I sliced my knife into the edge, confirmed it was Doug Fir, and quickly saved it from its end. The colors underneath the grey worn skin were more beautiful than I hoped and I used a small portion to make this fun hand puzzle for our Etsy Shop.

I am always in search for hidden treasures in the wood I salvage, and ways to continue the life of what others consider waste.
