Well this is now a commission – and it’s going to get a Wenge base pending design. We’re going to work on a foam mockup first, a unique concept with a suspended drawer. Too much to explain, but this will be very interesting when it’s done! You’ll have to wait for the photos … but here’s the top “almost” finished still needs some work.

Projected completion – probably September at this point we have a LOT going on. We’ll post the project when it’s done!

Mike is the butterfly genius on these projects!

Wow! I really like your use of butterflies – they are quite artistic in addition to being functional.

Mike is the butterfly genius on these projects! ... I put about 8 of them underneath – big walnut ones to help stabilize it.

The unique part is still yet to come – the base is going to be out of range of anything traditional or modern. It’s own scope of creativity!
