A friend had water damage in their home and had to have a room floor rebuilt. She had seen some of my sculpture and asked if I could build a bannister for an eat in kitchen out of quarter-sewn oak to match other furniture in her home. But we wanted to go back in there with not only a bannister, but an art piece too.
We worked together on the design and I carved it and inserted it into the bannister. The detail and craftsmanship to make all the pieces fit to make an extremely sturdy design was a big factor here.
I finished this in tung oil and sanded it all to 2000 grit. The most important thing to my work is the touch.
Hope you all like it too.
