Thanks for the post.

It’s simplistic in its beauty, or the beauty is in its simplicity…I’m not sure which way says it best, but you get my drift. Great job -SST

—-thank you all for your comments….

Now I must put some more information together and write a more detailed study//story on this piece….some-what soon for my records. It seems there’s a lot of information out there, in my blogging of this ‘wood art’ piece….again, just some-what scattered all around….oh well.

Thank you.

The legs flow with gracefulness and distress and yet the finish on the top almost appears to be wavy, at least in the picture..Well done Frank, well done indeed.

Hello Rob;
—-now there’s a combination of words that you’ve come up with for describing this piece….legs—-’gracefulness’ and ’distress ’,....and yes, I like that. Now if I may and I cannot resist this….top——’wavey ’ or let me add as ’wavey gravey’....

Sometimes I think that as a worker of wood, I have been ’graced with distress ’ and I’m sure the better for it. Hmmm, now lets see, I’m sure there’s a blog story in there some-where….

Thank you.

Top is:
—-wood used, ‘curly maple’

—-wood used, ‘sugar maple’

Crossover member:
—-wood used, ‘red oak’

Finish used on top is boiled linseed oil and beeswax, hand rubbed and Howards Feed-N-Wax;
—-legs are multiple and many coats of shellac, (garnet and orange) and then burnished with #0000 steel wool….

Thank you.
