This is a 20” cube made from Buckthorn. I’ve made about 15 of these as of late (various sizes).
Takes about 3 days to make 2 of them. Very hard on tools and blades!
Finished with EmTech 8000- waterborne pre-cat conversion varnish.

I like the square sides showing the insides of each twig/branch. You must have a tall bandsaw.

Wow, that’s impressive then. I figured you glued it all up and cut the edges in one go somehow. Looks very nice.

Do you sell these? I feel like you may be able to make a decent profit on them.

Very interesting use for this miserable plant. I could start building these today and would NEVER run out of buckthorn. I’m glad you found a good use for it.

Is it indeed a 20” cube? Whether it is or not, this is truly unique, artistically beautiful and practical. I hope you do well with it.
