I just completed this shelf. It is quilted maple, Padauk and a taste of Wenge’. The inset strip is also maple.

I made this shelf 24×6x5” deep. The finish is boiled linseed oil with lacquer.

Greg, the shelves are beautiful. What wonderful combinations of of wood you are using. I especially like the small decorative strips on the fronts of the shelves. Small detail with a big impact. These should do well at St. James. Keep shelving and keep posting.

I too like the new variety in your work. The shelves are another example of your artistic eye and creative mind.
Don’t stop sculpting boxes though. They are all just so cool.

Beautiful use of beautiful material!

Thank yall…these are just something of a change of pace to create a little variety for the shows. I get ideas from each one and ideas that certainly can be used in other pieces…including boxes.

Monte…I look forward to see how they are received at the shows…you never know.

Big Al…the wood combinations make so much of a difference…and I totally agree that the small details sometimes make a big impression..

Paul..thanks…these are fun also…heck I try to have fun with everything I do and I most certainly will keep making sculpted boxes..

Art…thanks so much

Great shelf Greg. Another good looking Deco piece. I hope these sell for you. I think we are all looking forward to hearing about how they do at the shows.

I like the way the quilted Maple give a flame effect (particularly obvious on the right side). Another quality project, Greg.
