I haven’t seen this posted on Lumberjocks yet, so I thought I might bring it to the community’s attention. A woodworker in Australia took six years to create this cabinet out of 34 different types of wood, including petrified wood and it’s valued at $1.5 million.

George isn’t stealing anything, he just wants to know where everything is.

George is just looking for his ”stuff”!

That is, IMO, a work of a lifetime with determination, patience, and craftsmanship!
Can you imagine moving that to some buyers location and the insurance required!
