I would have to find dozens of little, short, teeny weeny items to put on the shelves so I didn’t block the art work. Beautiful stuff Dennis, as usual.

Gotta love this shuffle. David’s doing all the hard work tracking all these gems down… thanks David!

I like the way the sides taper. How did you do the picture in the back! Beautiful.

Thanks John. That is just a very rough carving painted with acrylic paints.

Gotta love that “Shuffle”.

Denis, don’t know how I missed this earlier. When I saw the carving in the Shuffle picture, I knew it was your work.

Very nice, my friend.

Dennis,
This is very beautiful work. It must take a long time to craft a piece like this one.

Nice that this one came up again. Great job Dennis. Next you can make the bookshelf with the carvings on the doors. Then you can see the carving all the time, except when the door is open to get a book.

That’s way too beautiful to hide with shelves. Shame on you, Dennis. I agree with Bill…should have been on doors.
