I knew this had to be one of yours!!
Another unique idea. I especially like that there’s a second drawer in the base. Well, I especially like a lot of elements haha . Beautiful

Beautiful woodworking art. I have not seen this Aussie Red Cedar before. Is this a natural color here or did you put a stain on it? Varnish or other final finish on it? Thanks for sharing.

This is most unusual. I like it.

I’ve just got to purchase some of that Australian Red Cedar. I’ve. made a few boxes with it and loved the aroma.

Thank you everyone for your comments.

Yes Australian Red Cedar is a beautiful timber, it is sometimes referred to as Red Gold.

My work is finished in a blend of natural oils, the base is Tung Oil which tends to darken the timber slightly, therefore there is no need to use timber colouring or varnishes.

Good Health

Don’t even have to look down at the name to know it’s yours. Quite distinctive Tony. You are really pushing the envelope with your work. Just great and thanks for sharing.

very interesting design… reminds me of something, but I can’t quite put my finger on it…
