Just a few things that I have done lately. All Beetle Kill Pine. Didn’t want you to think I was bored.

First pictures are of 3 crosses. 16 feet tall and made of 8×8 beams. They are on private property and not for public viewing.

The next 3 are part of an entertainment center. It’s 8 feet wide and 6-1\2 feet tall. It’s 16 inches deep.

The Las picture is a set of shelves. I have posted plenty of shelves. These are 6 feet tall, 3 feet wide and 14 inches deep. These 2 go to a store display.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Great stuff, Monte! I like the way the bottom of the last set of shelves flares out/forward, following the trunk of the tree. It was nice of the owner of the crosses to send you a pic after they were set. Thanks for sharing.

Monte, I believe those shelves are my favorite thing you make with live edge.

I’m really glad you have so much work! Guess the Monte Pitman Style is gaining strength.

Those crosses are heavy duty!

Those shelf cases are awesome. The crosses are super and must weigh a ton. Wouldn’t want to move those around.
