A couple of years ago during a storm the sycamore tree in front of the local library came down, the fallen part had been scavenged for firewood unfortunately, but about 7 feet of trunk remained still standing, so with permission from the library I took it down and milled it into slabs.The wood was slightly spalted resulting in some spectacular color. Some of the boards look like they were painted with water color. They uprights are white oak that I milled as well, I didn’t have any sycamore long enough for the uprights, maybe something more contrasting would have been better visually, but it was what was on hand and free! The idea with this book case was to maximize showing off the sycamore.
